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.
