Nederlands: Foto. Een tropisch palmenstrand mag in een fotoboek over Nederlands-Indië niet ontbreken. Zeker niet als die palmen ook nog eens klapper- of kokospalmen zijn. Celebes was één van de gebieden van de Archipel waar een dergelijk 'Bounty strand' zo goed als overal te vinden was. De kokospalm komt van oudsher in de Archipel voor en de klappers werd sinds mensenheugenis voor allerlei doeleinden gebruikt. Maar klapperbomen zijn niet alleen 'natuur', ze zijn ook bronnen van inkomsten. Toen rond 1900 de vraag naar kopra, het gedroogde vruchtvlees van de kokosnoot steeg, was er vooral op Celebes een sterke neiging van de kleine boer om grote aantallen kokospalmen aan te planten. (P. Boomgaard, 2001). Het strand op Celebes. Het strand van Celebes, ca. 1915
Date 1900-1920
