About this object
An informal black and white photograph of the women (and children) associated with the Mataura Branch of the Birchwood Hunt Club. They are standing outside someone's house. Many of the older women are wearing hats to complete their formal attire. The book 'Mataura: City of the Falls' (pgs. 355-57) says that local hunts were held on William Scott's Mataura property.
