Description
     

This comes from a unique collection of photograph Duogravure plates published by The Page Company in 1916 for Isabel Anderson's "The Spell Of The Hawaiian Islands And The Philippines".

This vintage print is in very good condition, please examine the images closely for any small imperfections before making a purchase. The actual image size is about one inch less. We have left these plates untrimmed, so one side will be rough.

The vinta (locally known as lepa-lepa or sakayan) is a traditional boat found near the Philippine island of Mindanao. The boats are made by Sama-Bajau and Moros living in the Sulu Archipelago, Zamboanga peninsula, and southern Mindanao. It has a sail with assorted vertical colors that represents the colorful culture and history of the Muslim community. These boats are used for inter-island transport of people and goods. Zamboanga City is known for these vessels.
