Fascinating 120 year-old images of Hawaii including native surfers carrying their boards along a sandy beach have been unearthed.<br />
<br />
They provide a snapshot into life on the tropical paradise island and include intimate images of the native population.<br />
<br />
The photographs were taken by Herbert Smith, a draper from Manchester, who was living in Hawaii in the 1890s and have remained in the family since then.<br />
<br />
But they have now decided to put the collection, which includes letters documenting his travels, up for auction and it is tipped to sell for £2,500.
