Scope and Contents

A coloured lantern slide of Samoans and Europeans. The Samoans are presumably friends and estate workers at Vailima. The Europeans in the picture are, from left to right, Isobel Strong, Fanny Stevenson and Mr. Gurr. Gurr was a friend and neighbour of the Stevenson’s and married to a Samoan. His various misfortunes are described in ‘Our Samoan Adventure’. Fanny Stevenson left Samoa in April 1895, which would date the original photograph to this time. Print number 43.
