Fantin Ghenga Again


Another photograph contributing to the better identification of FG Fantin. He stands in the centre of this group, wearing a white neckerchief and holding a machete. Note the cane trash in the foreground, evidence that the cane was cut without burning, which would date this photograph to before the 1934-5 Weill's Disease Dispute, regarding which see Menghetti in Murphy `The Big Strikes: Queensland 1889-1965'
