I grew up there from 80 – 92 and its very interesting to see how Taurama barracks looked like in the 70s. Interesting to note that a decade before my time it looked nothing like my time.
how cool, we lived here 71/74 went to the public school, brings back such warm memories . it set me up for the best life that i never imagined , being the majority in there schools and coming into a new culture that was about family and community …. so soul filling forever grateful PNG i grew my wings while i had the honour to have had this experience , sing sing . food music flower happy hearts . so so so blessed
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,
