The text on the reverse reads: "SCENES IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC ISLANDS. 
An interesting collection of fine photographic views, groups, and figures, taken by Mr. Ernest Henderson during a six months' cruise on board the yacht Sybil among the different islands of the South Pacific Ocean, is published by Messrs. W. A. Mansell and Co. of 271 and 273, Oxford-street; and they may be purchased either separately or mounted...

The pictures of Fiji are very striking... the portraiture of the natives... with their arms and dress, is in many cases perfectly unique - similar subjects never having been taken before...The Solomon Island photographs afford excellent examples of the natives, the majority of whom are, at the present time, canniblas of the worst description.
