- A Place & Date Depicted White Hills, Australia
Negative - F. Stuckenschmidt & Family in Front of his Shop, 'Cornish Stores', White Hills, Bendigo, Victoria, circa 1860s Reg. No: MM 003828
- The photograh was previously identified as circa 1880, but the clothing worn clearly suggests a date of the 1860s - particularly the profile of the dresses and the bodice cut.
The family may be an earlier generation than that depicted in MM 003829, which appears to have been taken in the 1880s. F. Stuckenschmidt looks considerably older in the later image.
