Caption

Mr John George HARTILL and family on a street in Charleston, outside his workshop and adjoining home.  He was a blacksmith & tinsmith by trade and a good tradesman with a very inventive mind.  During the gold prospecting days the diggers main concern was the provision of water, and his ability to produce canvas type hoses for its transportation was a very valuable asset.
