This is a black-and-white print that shows diggers (miners) at Forest Creek on the Mount Alexander diggings in Victoria lining up before the Gold Commissioner's tent to pay a licence fee. A policeman stands guard next to the tent while, in the foreground on the left, two policemen can be seen speaking to a digger. The print, which measures 15 cm x 24.8 cm, is from a sketch by Samuel Thomas Gill and is one of the plates in Gill's book 'The diggers and diggings of Victoria as they were in 1852' published in 1855.
