Negative - Woman with Two Children in Pavilion, Pacific Islands, circa 1930s Reg. No: MM 113859
- Image of woman with two children in an open pavilion (note the many posts) with a large table with white cloth. The scene appears to show preparations for a feast or celebration - possibly a welcome feast for tourists, reinforced by the presence of a tablecloth - a very Western touch.
Note that homes of the period had walls and were not open to the elements, as is this pallion.
Part of a collection of 55 photographic lantern slides, glass negatives and acetate negatives of travel images taken in the Pacific Islands, probably in the late 1930s.
- Black and white cellulose acetate negative.
