Pictures collected by Gerry Richardson
Gerry, who lived in Montreal, collected a large amount of information about the Richardson and D’Arcy families in the process of writing two books, one about the Jardine expedition in North Queensland in the early 1860s, on which A J Richardson was the official government surveyor; the other about W K D’Arcy’s adventures with gold mines and oil wells. Neither was published, but in due course I hope to make the texts of both available on this site. The manuscripts, along with some photos and other papers that appear in this album, were sent over by our Canadian relatives following Gerry’s death. Much of the information, such as identification of people depicted, is based on Gerry’s explanatory notes.
