Henry Keyse was regularly on the Remuera where he was paid a retainer by the Shipping Company. He made his living cutting hair and also by selling souvenirs to passengers. He was, I believe, an amateur photographer, selling many of his photographs as postcards for the passengers to use. His photographic postcards show views of Icebergs at sea (1914), of the Panama Canal (after 1916) and also of Pitcairn Island and the Islanders. Many of his photographs have a hand written caption on the lower front of the card together with his initials "HGK". These postcards fetch high prices on eBay; anything from £15 to £90 or more.
