Call number: MLMSS 8070
Author: Foelsche, P. (Paul), 1831-1914. Bennett, John William Ogilvie
Description: This copy of a rare work on Aboriginal language was owned by Paul Foelsche, the Northern Territory's first police inspector. While he held that position from the 1870s to the 1890s, he also chronicled the township of Darwin and its people with a unique series of photographs. His images allow us to see the township of early Darwin, and the developments of the first railway and mine sites. He took beautifully composed pictures of the landscape, and sensitive portraits of more than 250 individuals of the indigenous Larakiah, Woolna (Djerimanga), Iwaidja and related peoples.
