HISTORIC IMAGES FROM BISHOP MUSEUM ARCHIVES by DeSoto Brown

The Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum in Honolulu
has been a mainstay resource for those requisite
“history of surfing” photos that compliment the early chapters
of many a surfing book and far-reaching historical article. Under
the informed and perceptive eye of DeSoto Brown, archivist and
collections manager, the museum has assembled a best-of selection
of the surf-related photographs in its collection (c. 1890-1960),
and it is a treasure trove of wonderful and evocative images, many
of them never before published. Brown’s captions, meanwhile,
include great info and anecdotes about the photos, making this a
must-have addition to every serious surf-culture library. - DK
