Some families appear to be from the Yankalilla area. It is not known who compiled the album. To view images, take the Browse Album link. The album provides examples of carte-de visite and cabinet portraiture of many Adelaide photographers of the 1870s to 1890s, as well as good examples of the clothing and dress fashion of the day. The photographers are noted in brackets after the caption, where they are known. Photograph 26 shows a person in military uniform with a distinctive pill box cap, possibly the uniform of the Mounted Volunteer Corps of the Volunteer Militia. The album has a hand sewn cream suede cover, with rudimentary embroidery done in an acorn and leaf pattern. Additional research was carried out by Anthony Laube, who believes the album probably belonged to Mrs Lovelock. His additional information is shown in square brackets.
