DESCRIPTION: Two pictures from ‘The Australasian’ newspaper
DATE: Undated, but most likely in the 1890s. As I’ve been unable to find out details about ‘The Australasian’ newspaper itself, I’ve relied on finding out details about the artists.
CURRENT OWNER OF THE ITEM: Alona Tester (nee Phillips)
STORY/ABOUT:  These were items that I have inherited from my Randell relatives. These are images that were printed on the old-style big newspaper pages that have been framed.
The top picture titled ”Caught in the act” is one that was painted by Arthur J. Elsley in 1894, while the lower one was one done by  Agnes Gardner King before 1902.
