235 x 177 mm. Another photograph of the same graveyard, but taken in greater close-up than Y309C/52. This photograph is taken at an earlier date but in fact contains more graves.

196 x 139 mm. A view looking towards the shore from the harbour with the village stretching along the shoreline and jungle and hills beyond. Prominent on the shore is the stone church. Apia is situated on Upolu Island in Western Samoa and after Pango-Pango is the most important harbour in the Samoan Islands. See also Y309993A and Y309C.
200 x 124 mm. A view looking over a copra plantation, with a cross marked on the print in the middle of a clearing. Angel Hope Freeman was a senior Lieutenant on HMS ‘Tauranga’, which arrived in Samoa on the 24th March 1899. Freeman’s grave can be seen clearly in Y309C/53. Copyright registered 21 Aug. 1899.

58 x 99 mm. A view looking along a grass road running between two lines of palm-trees.
139 x 103 mm. A view looking along rocky coastline, with palm trees at the water’s edge and a Samoan village just behind. Another print of the same photograph occurs at Y309B/64.
155 x 103 mm. A view looking along a sandy beach, with a river outlet and a small wooden bridge in the background.
99 x 57 mm. A view looking along rocky coastline, with palm trees at the water’s edge and a Samoan village just behind. A duplicate of Y309B/51.

A view showing a breadfruit tree laden with fruit. Print number 15.
Shows a Gatling gun post and British and American sailors during the Second Samoan Civil War. No print.
A view showing the British consultate a small wooden bungalow set among palm trees in its own garden. Print number 36.
185 x 133 mm. A view showing a small bungalow set on a low hill, with two women standing on the verandah. The flag pole in front of the house confirms an official function, although by 1899 this building was not the consulate (see Y309993A/36 for a photograph of the British Consulate during the war of 1899, a picture from another part of Wilfred Powell’s collection).
139 x 95 mm. A view showing a wooden bungalow with a raised verandah. As in Y309B/27 a flag pole announces the official status of the house, although this is a different building to that in Y309B/27, and is set among palm trees. From his correspondence it is clear that Powell moved several times during his stay in Samoa. The surrounding area looks very similar to that in Y309993A/36, although the building is different, or has been altered.
135 x 101 mm. Another view of the house seen in Y309B/29, with figures standing on the verandah.
141 x 103 mm. A view of the bungalow featured in Y309B/29-30 with figures standing on the balcony.
