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
