Negative - Paddy Dickson feeding Kanga Joe, Nandaly District, Victoria, 1923 Image Reg. No: MM 002213

Bill Boyd regularly exhibited his work at local shows, but because he 'used to scoop the pool, first and second every time' he decided to give up exhibiting to give other 'kids a go'.

He continued to enter photographs in competitions. This prize winning photograph of Paddy Dickson feeding Kanga Joe was entered in the 'Kodak One Thousand Pound' competition.
