Finchhaffen Native Sells Coconuts
"Cocoanut Salesman who came through our 17th Recon Camp area" (Negative sleeve seems to be in error - "Binmaley, 1945") From "Darkroom Soldier": "Coconut Peddler. Papuan tribesman regularly harvested coconut as a staple. Here, a vendor balances a full load on his should pole as he hawks his wares to the soldiers -- hatchet for opening husks in his right hand." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
