his working and personal life in thousands of expertly taken photographs.
From the early 1930s, he used a Graflex camera. Some of his work was
published in the Australian Photo Review and the Daily Telegraph.
This collection of original Evans negatives depicts the July 1934
arrival in Sydney of the Lockheed Altair which was to become the "Lady
Southern Cross". The collection was acquired by Tim Kalina in
