A new photo from the Powerhouse Museum every day
While millions of these ambrotype photographs were produced around the world and many thousands in Australia remarkably few have survived that can be linked to Australian society during the 1850s and 1860s. The accession register states that the sitter in the portrait is a young woman ‘Mrs. C. A. Ross’. Currently we have no more information relating to the sitter but would welcome comments from any one with more information.
