AbstractHistoryArchive Description

On 21 December 1925, Frederick Easton, the brother of photographer William R. Easton, went missing on a journey to meet the round-Australia travellers Edward Francis and Jean de Lancourt. Western Australian Police originally held the Aboriginal men accompanying Easton to blame for his disappearance. However, an investigation and witness statements revealed their innocence and a very different set of events.
