General Note
The image is probably a fake cut-and-paste portrait produced after de lacy Evans was discovered to be a woman in September 1879, after 22 years of dressing, living and working as a man. Registered by photographer, N. White, of Sandhurst, Bendigo, Victoria, the carte de visite would have been sold as a curiosity.
