Born, brought up and studied geology in Australia, Teale worked much of his life geological surveying in the Colonial Service in Tanganyika, East Africa. He was knighted on retirement to the UK in 1936. BGS has Teale's extensive archive of letters, diaries, field notebooks, a handwritten autobiography and many photographs. This image is probably from the 1920s.
