Summary
  • It is an oval head and shoulders portrait of Ned Kelly taken by the Police Photographer at Pentridge after Ned's transfer from the Beechworth Gaol in 1873. It shows Ned with a cropped haircut and with the shadow of facial hair. Prisoners were allowed to grow a beard in the last three months of their sentence.
Notes

  • The photograph is most likely taken on 24 January prior to Ned's release on 2 February 1874.
  • Lower image of two carte de visite portraits laid down on a blue sheet of paper one above the other on the left hand side with annotations in brown ink at right hand side running vertically.
