Production

A distinguished group of astronomers visited John Tebbutt at his Windsor observatory in August 1914: Dr Dyson, England's Astronomer Royal; Professor Turner, Director of Oxford University Observatory; James Nangle, architect, amateur astronomer and NSW Superintendent of Technical Education; and Professor Cooke, NSW Government Astronomer.

The other member of the group was one of Nangle's sons, so it is likely that he was the photographer.
