- Curator's comments
This photograph is part of a series of photographs taken on Alfred Haddon's trip in the summer of 1888 to the Torres Straits Islands. Many of these images were taken back to the Torres Straits Islands as lantern slides, as part of the Cambridge Anthropological Expedition to Torres Strait 1898-1899. Dr McNab created a list of Haddon's 1888 photographs, giving captions and numbers to the photographs.
