This colour photo shows Australian bush identity and businessman, Reginald Murray Williams, better known as RM Williams, sitting with one arm around his blue heeler dog and the other arm resting on a leather saddle. In this relaxed and casual portrait, he wears well-worn work clothes, presumably from the RM Williams range, including an Akubra Longhorn hat. Williams would have been 79 at the time this photograph was taken.
