Thank you for this account. Nice reading.

Thank you Mr Brown for the historical and unique photos. Yes, indeed Kainantu was amongst the first historical colonial towns in Papua New Guinea in the 1930's.

Kainantu was the stepping stone to prosperity and advancement of Papua New Guinea. It needs to be compensated in a special manner by the government for the gesture, paving the way for PNG's advancement.

First hand historical recounts from the days of the Kiaps, with outstanding colour photos and informative captions too. Again, a continuation of important historical colonial records of PNG. Thank you, Mr Brown.

Mathias Kin

Another brilliant piece from Mr Brown. Some wonderful pictures too. That early in the early 1950s Chimbus were already employed so far from their homes! I very much look forward to next chapter.
