Captain Johanson (on left) was the skipper of the ship Monterrey in the 1930's, which visited Niuafo'ou Island. Niuafo'ou Island is the famous Tin Can Island, where mail was sealed in Tin Cans and thrown overboard from passing ships so that islanders could collect them by swimming or canoeing to get them. The covers were then processd by Walter George Quensell, the Tin Can Mail Man. Quensell would place numerous hand stamps on the covers and send the letters back to the ships by swimmers or canoe. Niaufo'ou Island was a volcanic island and ships could not port. Supplies and mail had to be swam or canoed to the shores and then lifted up onto the Island.
