A youth carrying poles across a front yard area of a homestead with a hut to the right. He is making a pole structure in the yard consisting of a number of upright poles with cross-members sloping down towards a central horizontal pole. This structure was possibly used to place storage items on top off the ground.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
