This portrait is the first one on the blog from New Zealand. (There isn’t one yet from Australia.) The three chaps aren’t identified, unfortunately. The cabinet card was made at the studio of Wrigglesworth & Binns in Wellington. James Dacie Wrigglesworth (1836-1906) and Frederick Charles Binns (1844-1915) also maintained studios in Christchurch and Dunedin.
I don’t have any brilliant insights to make about this portrait, but I like the tweed suit worn by the fellow standing in back. Also, the painted backdrop is interesting. Presumably the plants represent species native to New Zealand.
