A woman and man standing in front of a table with plates and bowls filled with finger foods. On the wall behind them is a poster promoting the Olympic Games held in Melbourne in 1956. The soundproofing on the wall suggested it may be in a broadcasting studio.

This image is part of the Laurie Richards Collection at Museum Victoria comprising approximately 85,000 negatives taken by the Melbourne based Laurie Richards Studio between the 1950s -1970s. These negatives are all mostly large format [5"x 4"/ 12.5 x 10 cm], black and white images, though a significant number are in colour. The many photographic jobs that were undertaken in the course of thirty years are itemised in a set of log books, copies of which are also held by Museum Victoria.
