Morobe Goldfields – pre-WW2.

Michael Waterhouse is well advanced in writing a book on the Morobe Goldfields prior to WW2, and is looking for photographs of people who were on the field at this time. While he would be interested in any photos of individuals, he is particularly interested in obtaining photos of the following: Shark-Eye Park, Jack Nettleton, Cecil Levien, J.C. Coldham, George Arnold, Doris and Charles (Yorkie) Booth, Burleigh Gorman, Bill Royal, Bill Money, Dick Glasson, Frank Chisholm, Harry Darby, Hector Wales, Harry O’Kane, the Mining Warden J.D.Mclean, A.W.D. Mullins, Pard Mustar, Ray Parer, Helmuth Baum, Ned Coakley, Alice Innes, Eric Weine, Florence Stewart and Alice Bowring.

Could members who have photos of these or other people from this period, please contact Michael by email or on 02 9360 0226.

The above are a number of stills from some 1929-30 film footage, showing a number of people from the goldfields and elsewhere in New Guinea whose names are unknown. If any members have photos of people from this period and can use these to identify people in the stills, Michael would very much appreciate it if they could contact him.
