Summary
  • 4x5 inch black and white negative copied from an original (probably edition of Margaret Tart's biography of Quong Tart)
  • Caption (online version): 'Quong Tart - Mandarine [sic]'
  • This is a fuller version of this portrait than the Museum of Chinese Australian History copy. More of the floor and screen can be seen. Handwritten at the bottom of the picture is: 'Daily Tel' Eng Col.'.
  • photocopy
  • Gelatin silver photograph, 25.5 x 18.0. Handwritten caption: 'Yours sincerely Quong Tart July 11th 94'
  • Includes an accompanying article that discusses the various mandarin ranks and symbols of office. Note that is included on the same page as the Mayor of Sydney (wearing official robes), his wife and Rudolf, Count Festetics de Tolna (wearing a military uniform).
  • Published photograph with decorative boarder and extensive accompanying Chinese text. English caption under photograph reads: 'Mr. Quong Tart in his mandarin dress'. The Chinese article provides a brief biography of Quong Tart the 5th rank he was awarded by the Emperor as a result of his work with the Chinese Commissioners during their visit in 1887 [rough translation courtesy Kuo Mei-fen].
  • Qunog Tart wears some feathers in his hat, probably peacock (hua yu) or perhaps crow (lan yu) feathers. He also wears a set of mandarin chains and possibly a mandarin button on his hat.
  • Quong Tart wearing mandarin robes seated on a cane chair.
  • In 1894 Quong Tart was granted the rank of Blue Button, fourth rank - with the extra degree of the Peacock's Feather, which was worn on the hat [Travers p.141]. It is possible that the photograph published in Tart 1911 was based on an original photograph held by the Tart family and the original or a copy was then given to the Chinese Australian Herald for publication in 1897.
