There may be relevant photographs in the Elkin papers, but those photographs are mostly "unprocessed" with no caption list, and are currently closed to access. A search of the database for the miscellaneous photographs revealed nothing on Laves.

Until August 2001 there were no photographs at AIATSIS of or by Laves.

The Laves' family house, 5553 Kenwood, Chicago

This residence (then without its classical columns) was where Laves kept his Australian notes from July 1947 until the 1980s, first in the basement and later in the attic.

Photographs by David Nash, 9 June 2001.
