View of a whitewashed house at Noa'tau on the island of Rotuma, surrounded by coconut palm trees, captioned 'Modern Houses at Noatau, Rotumah' (printed caption). A handwritten annotation on the reverse of the mount, 'My House/ 1869', suggests that Charles Wood either built or, more likely, stayed in this house on an earlier visit to the island.
