Photographer's Note

Please open in a new tab.
Levuka in 1875 was the capital of Fiji but was still quite small. By 1997 it had shrunk quite a lot and had become a sleepy backwater. It's never been big on tourism because it doesn't have any classic Fijian beaches but quite a few do come for the history. It is also visited by its share of yachts.
For the last of this little series (for now anyway) the top photo this time is of the main street in 1997. The bottom is from a panorama taken by my great grand father. It shows the main street in 1875. You can see the old joins for the panorama.
The building materials hadn't changed in the 122 years between photos.
