This is an antique brown and white carte-de-visite. It shows a beautiful view of a group of Aboriginals with Boomerangs. They are members of R. A. Cunningham Australian Aboriginal international touring company. In 1882 Canadian theatrical agent Robert A Cunningham came to Queensland to secure 'wild' Aboriginal people as performers for touring in America and Europe in PT Barnum's show, 'Ethnological Congress of Strange and Savage Tribes'. Six of the nine troupe members 'recruited' were from separate communities on Palm Island and three from Hinchinbrook Island. They did not all speak the same traditional languages. Only two spoke some English, and these were used to assert Cunningham's claims that they were not coerced. Their performance in Barnum's Congress began in 1883 and in the following year two members of the troupe, Tambo and Wangong, had died This albumen silver photo was taken by William Robinson for Negretti and Zambra, Crystal Palace, London, England in April 1884. So it is more than one HUNDRED and 30 years OLD. Size is approximately 6.5 x 10.5 cm. On bottom side of the cardboard are some pencil dots. Condition: very good.
