Corkhill, William Henry, 1846-1936
W.H. Corkhill (1846-1936) documented many aspects of the inhabitants of the tiny twin settlements of Tilba Tilba and Central Tilba,on the south coast of New South Wales - farming, gold mining, shipbuilding and road making - and their rich and varied social life. His rapport with his sitters draws the observer into their world.
