THE CHRISTMAS MAIL BOAT IS IN! The little Morinda, outward bound from Sydney, anchors just outside the most southerly coral reef in the world,over which giant rollers break. Totheright of the breakers is a quiet strip of water, the northwest passage, by which launches and barges bring in passengers, mail, andfreight. The 1934 Christmas mail and supplies are being drawn ashore on the wharf "railway," while vacation guests and island residents look on.
