Photograph album of Whanganui River expedition
Album of photographs taken 1921 by James Ingram McDonald while on an ethnographic expedition up the Whanganui River. The expedition was undertaken by McDonald, Elsdon Best, Peter Buck, and Johannes Carl Andersen, under the auspices of the Dominion Museum.
There are many views of the Whanganui River and villages, including numbers of waka at Koriniti, and views of eel traps across the river.
Very detailed sequences of photographs show flax weaving, coarser weave for kete and eel traps, and finer quality for clothing and ceremonial mats.
The captions appear to have been added later, in pencil, with some names being unclear.
Many of the photographs have copy negatives, some are 1/4 and some 1/2.
