Description :

A family group: a studio view.

Townsend Duryea (junior) was the eldest son of Townsend Duryea (senior), who photographed the so-called 'Duryea's panorama' in Adelaide in 1865. Duryea (junior) was born in Adelaide in 1854. He is believed to have had links with the Adelaide Photographic Company and also had a studio under his own name at Ryan Street, Moonta, in the early 1880s. From 1884-91 his studio was located at 150 Rundle Street, Adelaide, and from 1892-1900 it was at 59 Rundle Street, where this photograph may have been taken. Duryea (junior) died at Port Pirie in 1925.
