To celebrate the coming winter solstice, here’s an unusual Tasmanian carte-de-visite. Scenic views are not common carte-de-visite subjects, and I don’t remember seeing a CDV Chrismas card before.
A sticker on the back credits the photographer H T Waterworth. The only record of Henry T Waterworth in The mechanical eye in Australia: photography 1841-1900 is that he was operating in Burnie in 1896, and in Hobart (at 89 Liverpool Street) in 1900. So, the card was probably published around 1900. The handwriting says (in ink) from Edward and (faintly in pencil) to H Hill.
