Large group picnic at Karragullen, Western Australia, 1926

A black and white image of many people picnicking in Western Australia in 1926. All of the people sit upon a rock platform, behind which is densely timbered bushland. There are many women, men, boys and girls in the image, sitting together in small groups. The men all wear shirts, jackets, long trousers and shoes. Some wear ties. One in the background wears a hat. The boys wear long-sleeved shirts, shorts, shoes and socks. The girls wear a variety of dresses, some with short sleeves. Some of the women wear long skirts, stockings and shoes, while others wear full length dresses. On the ground among the groups are picnic rugs, hampers and food. Some of the people in the groups face the camera, while others have their backs to it. In the foreground of the image and at left there are some light-toned patches on the rock platform, suggesting moss or lichen on the rock surface.
