Significance

This early20C or thereabouts photo of Barkly Street Ararat can be compared to several others in the Langi Morgala collection to formulate a picture of Ararat over the decades. It is not a particularly clear photo, but it is clear enough to enable such comparisons, and so is of regional significance.

Physical description

This is in postcard format, probably a copy of a hand-coloured original. It is not in very good condition, but some important details are discernable.
