Airco DH6 C7625
Photo by Augustus (Gus) Titter
||Please find attached the 2 photos that were found in the archive of my
deceased Uncle (Augustus Titter). They were found among approximately
400 glass plate negatives taken between 1910 &1925 mostly of the
Williamstown (Vic) and Footscray (Vic) areas and also some of Melbourne.
Because the other photos in the collection are of this area I believe
these 2 also have been taken here. The photos have been taken on a 1/2
plate camera (6 1/2" x 5" glass negative) which was a format mostly used
by professional photographers at the time.
I have tried to find out more about the pictures and the circumstances
surrounding the aircraft being in a paddock next to a house, but I have
only established that it is a de Havilland DH6 which I believe was used
for training by the AFC at Point Cook and this ties in with all the
other photos being news events and portraits taken near this area.
I hope this is of some help,
