Abstract

A picture of a man climbing a coconut tree using a rope to assist. A description on the back of the postcard reads "Owing to the height of the palms the gathering of the coco-nuts require specially trained men. They climb with the aid of a rope loop and become so expert that they literally walk up the trunk." Postcard numbered B 8.
