Banyan Tree, Botanical Gardens, Suva, Fiji, 1884 - 1885

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3089D/68
Scope and Contents

143 x 199 mm. A view showing the base of a large Banyan tree, with a group of Europeans and Fijians standing on the branches a few feet from the ground. Their identity is not known nor whether they are inhabitants or members of the expedition to the Coral Islands. It is possible Burton is among the group, and if this is so he would be the figure with a white beard standing at the centre of the main group. Very tentative identification, however.
