Part of the Lillian Louisa Pitts collection. Lillian Pitts photographed, processed and printed her photographs from about 1910. The collection is based on her life in the fruit growing and dairying community of Merrigum, a town west of Shepparton, in the Goulburn Valley. Lillian Pitts was born in 1872, she arrived in Merrigum with her family in 1893 and died in 1947.
This is an image was used in a narrative sequence in an album Pitts created. This photographic narrative sequence was published as ‘Tommy Trick’s Adventure’ in the ‘Melbourne Herald’ on 1st January 1924, and constituted Lillian’s entry in the newspaper’s ‘Ideal Holiday Competition’. Lillian did not win a prize with her entry. The photographic narrative was later published as ‘Merrigum Frank’ by Museum Victoria in 1990.
