Related information: The photographs in Oc,B132 were donated with a handwritten ethnography of Queensland Aborigines by W E Roth. The ethnography gives descriptions of the photographs in B132 and it appears that the photographs were once stuck onto the pages of the ethnographic accounts. The handwritten ethnographies and photographs were used in a series of bulletins written by Roth on North Queensland Ethnography. These printed bulletins, the photographs and the glass negatives of the photographs are all owned by the Australian Museum, who gained the material when Roth sold his collection to the museum.
