Summary
  • A posed studio photograph of a group of Aboriginal people ministering to an injured man and woman. They all wear raffia skirts and the man to the far left wears a feathered head dress. The presence of a discarded bicycle at the right indicates that a collision has occurred. The woman lies on an animal fur whilst a man holds a bottle to her lips and another ties bark to her lower leg. Gum trees feature centre and right in the picture.

  • The files which now comprise the Victorian Patents Office Copyright Collection were begun by the Victorian Patents Office in 1870. In order to register copyright, a copy of the photograph, print or illustration was lodged with the Victorian Patents Office at the Melbourne Town Hall. A number was assigned and the photographs were mounted in scrapbooks. The photographs were stamped with the date of registration but this ceased in 1873. The original registers are now in the National Archives of Australia. The Picture Collection holds photocopies of these registers. The registers or indexes contain the following information: Date of registration, name and address of proprietor or author, description of the work and date of first publication. Images were registered from 1870 until 1906. The collection was transferred to the Melbourne Public Library in 1908.
