(contact QldPics about this picture)

Harriett Brims (nee Elliott) was born in Yandila, Queensland, in 1864. She married Donald Gray Brims in November 1881, and had five children between 1882 and 1890. The family moved to Ingham in 1894, and within a few years Brims had established herself as a professional photographer, first listed in Pugh's Trade Directory as proprietor of the 'Britannia Studios' at Ingham in 1902. She moved her operations to Mareeba in 1903, and later worked as a photographer in Chillagoe, Irvinebank,Watsonville and Brisbane. (Information taken from: Joan Kerr (ed), Heritage : the national women's art book : 500 works by 500 Australian women from colonial times to 1955, 1995). In this image, taken by Harriett, a man (Donald Brims?) is painting a boat in the yard of their Ingham residence. A tall tripod-like configuration with a large pulley and chain is set up in the yard, possibly for lifting timber.
