Sir Sidney Kidman

This exhibition comprises of up to 50 photographic prints, artwork and 16mm films that document the life and times of Sidney Kidman. Most of the photographs for this exhibition are from the Sidney Reid collection and have never been exhibited.

Reid was the Adelaide manager of S. Kidman & Co from 1913 to 1935 and travelled extensively with Kidman on inspection tours of his stations. He recorded these travels in a series of leather bound photo albums and journals that will be displayed in the exhibition. His collection of photographs and 16 mm movie film is an extraordinary record of the life in the outback during the early 1900s.
