Reminiscent of Henri Cartier-Bresson's Sunday on the Banks of the Marne, 1938, this photograph was taken during a mammoth 14-week pan-Australian assignment for Time-Life Books, which Moore undertook on his return from London. Like all photographers, he was influenced by Cartier-Bresson's credo of the 'decisive moment', but later followed a more intellectual approach to photography.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
