Warning: This article contains a historical hunting photo.
A jumble sale purchase in Kiama has led to a hunt to discover the origins of a photo.
Ralph Murdaca purchased the negative (6x9cm) on sheet film and had it developed.
To determine the orgin of the photo, Ralph placed the photo on numerous Facebook pages in an effort to find out more information. The photo was colourised by someone in the UK.
Ralph said he has received more than 600 comments from people around the globe.
"Thirty per cent of people are saying he is an Australian light horseman from the Boer War from the Highlands," he said.
"Others then say he is American because he is wearing hob nail boots and others say he is from the UK as the rifle was used by the British soldiers in the Zulu War.
"Each time I feel like I'm making progress, someone comes up with a comment and justifies it by using items in the photo, like the type of fence and building in the back ground, to support there comment."
If anyone has any information on this photograph, please email email@example.com.
