Notes
  • 204 x 151 mm. A view showing Mr. A.E.C. Forrest, a European lay worker, standing among locals who carry large coils of feather money. Montgomery wrote: 'These bush people...are also, I believe, the weavers of the only money currently in Santa Cruz - the famous 'feather money' made in coils, with a groundwork of some fibre, and clothed with a covering of red feathers taken from the breast of a little bird. Nowhere else is this money known; and most strange fact of all, I am assured by Mr. Forrest that this money has only come into existence during the last thirty years (Montgomery, H.H (1896), 'The light of Melanesia'. London: SPCK, p.126). The photograph is also used as an illustration in Montgomery's 'The light of Melanesia'. Possible photographers include: Montgomery, Henry Hutchinson, 1847-1932, Bishop of Tasmania; Brittain, Arthur, fl 1892, clergyman; Welchman, Henry, fl 1890-1899, clergyman.
