Description:

The best pictorial account of Australia’s legendary Cattle King and now out of print.

The Extraordinary Life of Sir Sidney Kidman presents over 500 never-before-seen images and documents of Australia’s ‘Cattle King’, taken from the family archives of Sir Sidney Kidman.

In 2011, author and photographer Christo Reid inherited the personal belongings of his Aunt, who died at the age of 98. Amongst her belongings were a collection of photograph albums, journals and newspaper cuttings from Sidney Reid, her father. Sidney Reid was the son-in-law of Sir Sidney Kidman, the greatest single landowner in modern Australian history and a grazier dubbed ‘The Cattle King’. Sidney Reid managed Kidman’s Adelaide office from 1912 to 1935 and throughout that time was involved intimately in both business and family life, travelling extensively with Kidman on tours of all his properties and sharing in family celebrations. Reid was also an avid photographer, and arguably Kidman’s greatest admirer. He left behind an extensive collection of photographs, clippings and 16mm back and white film meticulously documenting the harsh reality of life in the outback of the early 1900s, as well as the life of one of Australia’s most prolific pioneers.
