Antique Photo of a Native Hawaiian Fisherman Ca 1899
This is an antique, circa 1899 photograph of a Native Hawaiian fisherman on photographic paper, pasted to cardboard. We do not know who the photographer is, but it appears printed in a book by Caspar Whitney that was published in 1899, and as such, we can infer a date that is close to 1899, and probably post US annexation. It depicts a Native Hawaiian fisherman with a spear, wearing a loin cloth as what appears to be a type of mesh basket/bag around his shoulder, probably for carrying fish or shellfish. This is an important ethnographic document of how Hawaiian fishermen dressed in the late 19th century. Original of an important photograph in the Hawaiian history that has been reproduced in old postcards. At the bottom right of the photo is written: "A Native Fisherman" in white letters, just like photo on wikipedia.
