PAPUA NEW GUINEA SURFING

Extremely rare rendering of two native girls from the island of Papua New Guinea surf-riding. Printed in England sometime in the early 1900s. Appears to have some missionary-type overtones as printed on the reverse side. Very good condition and has never been used (no postmark). This image is one of the earliest known depictions of female surfers outside of Hawaii. Measures about 3.5 by 5.5 inches. Matted and framed in a handsome hardwood and rattan frame.
