NOTES

General note

Keyword subject:

Cangon Station (Dungog, N.S.W.)
Howard, E. Noreen
Mackay, J.K.

Signature / Inscriptions

Two of the sketches, f.1 and f.2, are inscribed 'Minns Cangon June 26'.
The remaining sketches are neither signed nor dated. None of the sketches are titled.

Attributions / Conjectures

Although the inscription 'Minns' on sketches f.1 and f.2 are different from B.E. Minn's signature on the other, finished works in the collection, all the sketches are believed by the previous owner, who was the subject of two of the portrait sketches, to be by B.E. Minns.

Description source
