Old Film:: Work Camp Barber (1940-50s)

Life around the camps and itinerant workers of Tasmania’s West Coast was a difficult life in the 1940s and 1950s. The photograph on this page is scanned from a 6cm x 9cm film negative made by my grandmother Elvie Ruth Bonner (1901-1986). I have no idea where the barber clipped that man’s hair or why my grandmother made this particular portrait – whether the subject was family or friend.
