These photographs of Samarai, circa 1906, including one of the Trobriands, were provided by Mrs Pat Shea in conjunction with a series of letters written by her grandfather, Master Mariner Soren Nelson.

The images of these letters including a relevant newspaper cutting can be found in "Letters from a Hundred Years Ago : a tale of love and tragedy".
