Summary

"A usually, but not always, benevolent feudal lifestyle prevailed in much of the Northern Territory, Queensland and WA until the 1970s. After photographing the ladies making soap, I was invited to lunch by the property owner, widow Mrs Ward. The weather was hot, but we were cooled at table during our meal by "punka" fans moving rhythmically back and forth above our heads. Powered, I discovered later, by Koori girls pulling ropes from behind tall wooden screens!." -- Description supplied by photographer.
