This image was taken on St. Margaret Island in Gippsland. Here some of the men in the O'Connor family are watering the horses somewhere on the island.

John Joseph 'JJ' O'Connor leased St Margaret Island to graze cattle there in the summer, in the early 20th century. The photographer of this image, Doctor Sydney Pern, was a friend of the contributor's family, who lived in Yarram. In addition to his duties as the local GP, he was an enthusiastic amateur photographer.
