The item is a black and white cabinet card (with edges trimmed) showing a Chinese temple or Chinese community Tachiu event which may have been hosted by the Hongnen Chee Kung Tong (CKT). It may have been taken in Victoria. On the back of the card is the studio inscription of Mrs. R. Maynard's photographic studio with the address given as the corner of Douglas and Johnson Streets in Victoria. It is presumed to have been taken between 1872 and 1892 as that is when Maynard's studio was located at Douglas and Johnson Streets.
