Object Detail


Ambrotype portrait of John Oxenham (presumed left) and Frank Standish (presumed right). Both men are seated on a lounger. Oxenham is wearing a casual shirt and is looking at the camera. Standish is wearing a jacket and bow tie and is looking away from the camera. The ambrotype is surrounded by a plain metal matt with embossed gold metal edging and is contained in a plain maroon/brown leather case with painted gold patterns around the edge. The case has lost its lid. There are two clasps mounted along the top edge of the case (if oriented per image). Both men were scouts and dispatch riders in the First Taranaki War, 1860-61.
