Bush Life - Reminiscences of Henry Hammond Tilbrook
Henry Hammond Tilbrook's (1848-1937) youthful experiences in the north of South Australia 1864-5, with photographs taken in later life.
He was a well-known Adelaide photographer from the 1890s onward. His widely-circulated photographs of SA’s Mid North are some of his best. Less well-known is the fact that he first saw this country when a naïve youth working on Thomas Elder’s properties. The frank, honest diaries of his adventures in the 1860s and written up by him in the 1930s, as held by the State Library, have been painstakingly transcribed, giving fascinating insights into an itinerant worker’s life. Tilbrook's closely edited Reminiscences are now to be published, complemented with many striking photographs.
