Ed Forster is mentioned and immortalised as an early Maryborough photographer, this mounted parlor card is inscribed with the following: “Unborn dugong calf, captured 1873. Sent to the Philidelphia Exhibition . . . in spirit and a glass case”. The other piece is a brooch which is a mounted and set, snake’s lower jaw in 9ct rose gold, maybe Australian?
