This carte dates from approximately quite soon after the death of Charles Wherrett senior, whose studio began operations in 1872. His sons inherited the business, and his eldest – Charles B. Wherrett maintained it through to the 1900s, sometimes in partnership with R. McGuffie.

Charles Wherret senior opened a studio in Hobart in 1872.

His son Charles B. Wherrett continued the business well into the 1900s trading as Messrs Wherrett & Co.
