Boys diving, Honolulu
A large group of small boys stand on a pier, looking up at what probably is the railing and hoping pennies will be thrown into the water for them to retrieve. The boys are clothed only in swim trunks. At a distance of approximately a mile, six large clipper shipss can be seen at anchor.
