Tobacco Road - Jeff Carter

My Saturday's are always action packed as I struggle to fit in the week's domestic chores. Last Saturday I took a break from domesticity and went into the city to see a photographic exhibition at the State Library of NSW entitled Beach, Bush and Battlers.

The exhibition features iconic black and white images by Jeff Carter. Tobacco Road is one of his more famous images. If you live in Sydney and you have the time, please go to the exhibition and marvel at what life in Australia used to be like.

Every time I see well crafted black and white photos it reminds me why I first picked up a camera. Black and white film photography remains my first love.



  1. What a gorgeous photo! Love the look the cow is giving the people!

  2. Some reporters have managed to track down a few of the people featured in the exhibition. This photo was taken in 1956 and I'm pretty sure the little boy in the photo was tracked down and still lives in the area.

    The cow just makes the photo, doesn't it?
