A SELECTOR'S HUT ON SUNDAY MORNING
Our engraving depicts the avocations often pursued at a selector’s homestead on a Sunday morning in the early stages of settlement, when rest is taken from work,and the day, or at least the morning, is given to such odd jobs as washing clothes, sharpening saws, grinding axes or putting in a new handle, or other light occupations.The view, we may add, shows a real scene, and the engravingis taken from a photograph placed at our service by Mr. J.F. Atkinson, and taken by him during a holiday trip to Narracan Creek, South GippsLand.
