One thought on “Photos of Taurama, Port Moresby and Tami Islands

  1. I am from Tami Island and am so amazed at seeing the two great canoes (double masts) that once traversed the waters of Huron
    Gulf and The Vitiaz Straight. They were the ‘Anzanec’ left and ‘Bukwalawizing’ right. And also the three ‘tagos’ the tumbuans, one of them is not seen anymore. Must have been sold.
    Otherwise the photos that showed the beauty of Port Moresby in the early 70s, will never be the same again. I was in a Primary ‘T’ School around this time.
    Thank you for keeping the good old memories,

    Cheers
