Unknown photographer's 1918 journey into the Centre unearthed

 

A photograph album close to 100 years old recording a journey from Oodnadatta into the mining country north-east of Alice has made its way into the hands of Alice Springs historian Dick Kimber.  The photographer thus far is not identified but Mr Kimber believes he may be related to one of the men featuring in the photos. He says they appear to be an official party of some sort, certainly with an interest in minerals, and the clothing suggests that it was winter-time. Hand-writing on the front of the album says the year was 1918. KIERAN FINNANE reports.

 

Pictured: The caption identifies these men as Bromley, Williams and Stokes. Mr Kimber knows of no other photo of Stokes, a major prospector of the era.
