    Description
    This photograph depicts three men in suits and hats standing together with building and cars behind. A sign upper right possibly reads 'Annual Stud...Commonwealth'. The photograph could relate to stud sales by the Commonwealth Wool and Produce Company and was possibly taken during the 1930s.
    SignificanceThe Samuel J Hood photographic collection records an extensive range of maritime activity on Sydney Harbour, including sail and steam ships, crew portraits, crews at work, ship interiors, stevedores loading and unloading cargo, port scenes, pleasure boats and harbourside social activities from the 1890s through to the 1950s. They are also highly competent artistic studies and views - Hood was regarded as an important figure in early Australian photojournalism. Hood’s maritime photographs are one of the most significant collections of such work in Australia.
