Backhouse, John Philemon, 1843-1908 :Military settler's cottage, Hamilton. [1865-1900]
1870 - 1900
Backhouse, John Philemon, 1845-1908

Shows three small wooden buildings: the central one is a small two-window cottage with a rain barrel, in front of a small wooden church building. At the far left, the third building (which has an outbuilding) is partly obscured. A stooped figure in the right foreground may be weeding the grave enclosure.

Backhouse was resident in the Militia in Hamilton from 1865 and left the Militia in 1866. He then worked with the 4th Battalion. He then set up as a house and carriage painter in Hamilton and was based there until the late 1870s. This house may be his own.
