Negative - F. Stuckenschmidt & Family in Front of his Shop, 'Cornish Stores', White Hills, Bendigo, Victoria, circa 1860s Image Reg. No: MM 003828

Summary:
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.
Description Of Content:
F. Stuckenschmidt and his family in front of his shop, the 'Cornish Stores'. A street sign in front of the shop reads'Bank Gold Office' and there is a gas lamp on the corner. The store is a brick building with a residence attached to the side. The women are dressed in crinolines and there is a horse and buggy outside the store.
