Description

Group portrait of the Hamilton Boys (Group 31) in front of the Darge Photographic Studio building and a display of photographs. The Hamilton Boys were soldiers who came from Hamilton, Victoria, and the surrounding area. This is one of a series of photographs taken by the Darge Photographic Company which had a concession to take photographs at the Broadmeadows and Seymour army camps during the First World War. In the 1930s, the Australian War Memorial purchased the original glass negatives from Algernon Darge, along with the photographers' notebooks. The notebooks contain brief details, usually a surname or unit name, for each negative. The names are transcribed as they appear in the notebooks.
