Next photo. This one helped me orient my memories of Lae: One of Scott Martin's Chinese New Year photos showed the Commonwealth Bank, which used to be on the corner of Coronation Drive and 6th Street, next to a large white building I thought was Anderson's. I can see from this photo, though, that Anderson's was between BP's and Kam Hong's. Using the 1966 PNG phone book I mentioned in an earlier post to clue me in, the white building in Scott's photo has to be the New Guinea Company. But enough rambling: this piecing together the jigsaw puzzle of past memories is probably of interest to no-one but me. BTW, can anyone tell me who owned the Highland Products store in 4th Street opposite Lae Theatre back in the 60's?
