Young boy and baby girl in long grass, probably Tilba Tilba area, New South Wales, ca. 1895, by William Henry Corkhill, via National Library of Australia Commons on flickr.
Corkhill was an amateur photographer who took thousands of pictures of his family members and neighbors between 1890 and 1910, often posing them in their gardens. In 1975, his daughter gave his approximately 1,000 surviving glass plate negatives to the National Library.

[…] I love this formal pose in front of a vegetable garden — and it’s very typical of the photographer’s work. […]
