Dinjimanne and family, 1903

A black and white photograph of an Australian Aboriginal man, woman and child standing on flat ground with low vegetation and a row of trees behind them. They are all looking at the camera. The man is on the left and beside him the woman is holding the child on her right hip. All three are naked. The man has long hair and a beard and is carrying three spears and a spear thrower in his left hand. His right arm is behind his back with his right hand holding his left arm below the elbow. The woman has a large food carrier on her head supported on a pad, and she holds a digging stick in her right hand.
