This was the rooftop view from the window of our room.  Not that it mattered much as we were out, most of the day getting a look at San Francisco.

JUST TRYING TO GET TO THE TOP

 

Not at all easy to climb the Coconut Tree as the Gilbertese fellows made it look.

This picture was taken of me, by Allan Morgan.  He worked in the Communication Centre and was a telephonist.

YOUNG GILBERTESE GIRL

 

I think this little girl after the Fifty Four Years of leaving Christmas Island would now be an age of about Fifty Eight or Fifty Nine.  I have often thought how great it would have been to have given the Children and Adults a picture of them self as a gesture of thanks at that time.  There was not a chance to pop down the Photo Shop and get the film developed and prints to hand around.  I used to send the film home and my family would get the film processed and prints done, to look at.
