One-o-Clock - O1 to O5






These were the first five postcards that I published in 1996. They show early views of Pitcairn reproduced from old black and white photographs.

O1 Shows a view of Pitcairn from one of the New Zealand Shipping Company's vessels.
O2 Is a view of the boat sheds in Bounty Bay.
O3 The 'Hill of Difficulty'.
O4 The graveyard on Pitcairn.
O5 Islanders in their long-boats about to trade with a passing ship.

It is not known for sure what dates the photographs were taken, but they could be from as early as 1916 up to the 1930s.

I still have a few sets of these cards available for sale in mint condition.
