Photographer - Lilian Louisa Pitts.
This is the first image used in a narrative sequence in an album Pitts created. This photographic narrative sequence was published as 'Tommy Trick's Adventure' in the Melbourne Herald on 1 January 1924, and constituted Lilian's entry in the newspaper's Ideal Holiday Competition. Lilian did not win a prize with her entry. The photographic narrative was later published as 'Merrigum Frank' by Museum Victoria in 1990.
