One of three copy photographs. Portrait of Nancy, David and Betty Murdoch, 1933.

These images relate to three Chinese dolls, which were given to Nancy (born 1918), Elizabeth (born 1922) and David (born 1926) Murdoch in the 1920s by their aunt Dora (Murdoch) Long (born in 1874) in the 1920s. Dora was the sister of the children's father William Murdoch. Dora lived in Eaglehawk near Bendigo at the time she gave the dolls to her nieces and nephew who were living in Camberwell at the time. The three dolls may have been purchased in Bendigo by Dora, as there was a well-established Chinese community in the town by the 1920s, with several Chinese owned shops importing goods from China.
