Object Detail

Red leather bound photograph album with the title "Some "Soldiers of the Queen" who served in the Maori Wars and Other Notable Persons Connected therewith" embossed in gold lettering on the cover. The album is compiled by William Francis Robert Gordon and contains 455 photographic copies of original photographs, mostly carte-de-visite portraits of people related to the New Zealand Wars. It is assumed most of these copies were taken by Gordon himself. Most of the photographs are silver gelatin chloride printing-out paper prints, with the exception of five albumen prints, six silver gelatin bromide developing-out paper prints and six photomechanical reproductions. A portion of the imagery in the album is loosely ordered into regiments.
