'Ernest Lund Mitchell (1876-1959), photographer and farmer, was born on 9 August 1876 at Horton, Yorkshire, England, second child of Oliver Mitchell, wool and waste dealer, and his wife Eliza, née Lund. Ernest came to Melbourne with his parents and sisters in October 1884 because of his father's asthma. The family later went to Sydney before returning to Yorkshire about 1891, where Ernest was apprenticed to his uncle Percy Lund, owner of a printing firm at Bradford. Mitchell migrated to Sydney with friends in the Frederich Der Große, arriving on 31 December 1899, by which time he owned good cameras and was a skilled photographer.'
