This image was taken by Baldwin Spencer during his tenure on the Wilsons Promontory board of Management. Spencer had been a leading figure in the campaign to make the Prom a nature reserve and in mid 1905 it was declared a permanent National Park. Unfortunately the coastline was annexed from the Park. This was rectified in 1908 following further campaigns. The committee of Management was also formed in 1908 with Baldwin Spencer as Chair and James Kershaw as secretary, roles they both held until their deaths.
