Bilamuk Gapal, Larrakia man, Palmerston NT 1891

Some years back, a cache of old photographic plates was discovered near Darwin in Australia's Northern Territory. The haul revealed (among other things) a wealth of brilliant portraits of Aboriginal people in their traditional attire and adornment. This card was produced by the South Australian Museum to coincide with an exhibition and is my clear favourite from the collection. Another reason to love museum issue postcards.
