Description :

Portrait of J. Haimes from Patapa from the S.A. Northern Pioneers' composite, 1850-1859 (shown in position on B 6912/4).

Potapa, Patapa or as it is spelt today Puttapa, is in the northern Flinders Ranges and now forms part of the Beltana pastoral lease. It was taken up in 1854 by John Haimes at which time it was 195 square miles in extent. He sold it in 1862 to Thomas Elder. Haimes also held at various times the Baroota run and Old Telowie run (near Port Germein) in the mid north of South Australia.

The death of Captain Haimes in Geelong Victoria was reported in the Adelaide observer, 31 May 1890, p. 36, col. e.

Mr. Bagot, of Messrs. Lewis, Shakes, & Bagot, has received a telegram announcing the death at Geelong on Monday of Captain Haimes, a well-known racing man, and formerly partner of Messrs. Haimes, Mallen, & Co., of Waverly Brewery Mitcham.
John Lewis was at one time employed by Haimes on his Puttapa property, before branching out on his own.
