Ka Kalo Creek, Papua New Guinea, 1885, by John William Lindt, carbon print/autotype printed c 1893,
In 1885 Grafton-based photographer JW Lindt visited Australia’s newly acquired Protectorate of New Guinea and took this photo at Kalo Creek in the Kapa Kapa district. Reproduced as an autotype in his 1887 book Picturesque New Guinea, it was also part of a series of large exhibition prints Lindt made in the 1890s. This photo is a contender for the largest vintage print in the Library’s collection. Lindt’s signature is in the lower right-hand corner.
