Administrative / Biographical history

Fred Hardie was company photographer for G. W. Wilson & Co. of Aberdeen Scotland.

King Tommy (depicted on the left) was a Bundjalung elder from the Clarence River region around Grafton. Another photograph of him in the same series by Fred Hardie (call no. PXD 754/160) depicts him in a breastplate with the inscription 'King Tommy. Carr's Creek. belonging to Hy. DIX. ESQ. GRAFTON'. Breastplates were given to Aboriginal people by settlers to identify them as belonging to the property and they were expected to to provide settlers with labour and knowledge about the land whilst surveying the activity of other Indigenous people coming onto the land.

Henry Dix was an English immigrant who arrived in Sydney in 1839 and subsequently settled with his family in Grafton. It is likely the hut depicted in this photograph is the residence of Tommy and his family on Dix's property.
