The full-length studio portrait (92 x 55 mm) is mounted as issued on the printed card of W.H. Schroeder, 649 George Street, Haymarket ('and at Princes Street, Grafton'). The firm was definitely active at that address from 1867 to 1879, but the image appears to be earlier rather than later in this period. The uniform is that of the NSW Volunteer Artillery from the 1860s. Very similar caps are also to be found in a Tasmanian photograph in the collection of the Australian War Memorial (A04784), 'ten men of the Hobart Town Volunteers Artillery and ten men from the First Rifles', dated October 1863.
