Hussey’s Zither Banjo

“During the evening, the party congregated in the Billabong, and held a concert. The voices, accompanied by Hussey’s indispensable banjo, sounded strangely out of place amidst the profound silence of the hummocks, yet it is gratifying to hear that ring of hearty laughter that betokens contentment and harmony, the attributes of excellent leadership, and good eating.”

— Frank Hurley
