Photographer's Note

To follow up the Levuka photo taken from Gun Rock that I posted recently here is one taken in the other direction of the next village of Vagadaci. Gun Rock is so named because naval ships used it for target practice.
As with the previous photo I have posted a photo taken in about 1880 by my great-grand father who was an early south pacific photographer. The other photo shows the area stripped of vegetation - possibly for cooking fuel but also possibly for use in ship repairs. In this photo there has been massive re vegetation of the hill sides. The flat area with houses beside the water, in colonial days, used to be the cricket ground. It is now occupied by government housing.
This photo was scanned from a negative.
