This black-and-white photograph shows two lines of Chinese men, about 19 in all, squatting on the bare ground and eating a meal outside Croydon Court House in northern Queensland. The men are wearing Western-style long-sleeved shirts and trousers, and their queues (plaits) are wound around their heads. Plates and mugs are laid out on a mat in front of them. Two European men, one dressed in a military uniform, and a uniformed Indigenous man stand nearby and appear to be supervising the proceedings.
