Summary

"One of the earliest images made with my recently imported 35mm Nikon cameras. The two cameras were in fact smuggled in on a cargo boat from Tokyo by a seaman friend of an expatriate Australian then living in Japan, Andrew Hughes, an independent member of parliament in the 1940's. There was then a heavy duty on cameras and lenses - and so much red tape involved with their importation, it seemed easier to have them come in via the back door. This was easy enough: I visited the recently docked ship at Pyrmont around 7 a.m. and walked off with the unconcealed parcel of contraband past the tiny customs office, which did not open until 9a.m.!" -- Description supplied by photographer.
