Pachu River, Choiseul

This photograph was made by John Watt Beattie in 1906 on a tour of the Melanesian Mission ship Southern Cross through Vanuatu and Solomon Islands.

Beattie published a catalogue of Pacific Islands photographs and wrote a journal which provides additional information about many of them.

It was taken from a photo album owned by Edge-Partington
