Two Men in a Boat

Exhibition and Shows

An exhibition of stereograph photos of Murray river scenes taken in 1862.

Two photographers visiting Echuca from the Victorian Goldfields exchanged their wagon for a boat of river red gum of planks and rowed from Echuca to Goolwa in 1862.

Taking photos of many of the properties along the way they spent four months on the river and rowed 1700 kilometres.

One of the photographers was Edward W Cole who founded Cole’s Book Arcade in Melbourne and his colleague George Burnell was a photographer.
