New Guinea photographs

No Binding. A collection of 15 photographs on glass plates depicting life and people in Papua New Guinea.

They show local people, villages and buildings, plantations, canoes and beaches, and one is an image with text showing an Islands steamer left high and dry after the devastating volcanic eruption in Rabaul, the capital town, in 1937. Glass plates 8 x 8 cm. Good. Item #019947
