Old Film:: Farmer & Dogs, South West Tasmania

Environmental portraiture seemed to be another interest in my grandmother’s photographic repertoire. This photograph is scanned from a 6cm x 9cm film negative made by my grandmother Elvie Ruth Bonner (1901-1986). The year could have been anywhere from the 1930s through to 1950s and I’m not entirely sure what decade such a farmer may have had electricity, so I’d be tempted towards later years. Especially as much of our power scheme was built with post-war migrant labour from Europe. I have no idea who the farmer is in this photograph but he was a hard working man in Tasmania’s rugged South West.
