Walk Down Memory Lane - Lae circa 1960's - courtesy of Scott Martin

Have scanned for your use an old booklet on Lae and the Morobe District that appears to have been printed during the mid 1960's. Cannot find a date anywhere but there were some clues; makes reference to decimal currency as well as Horrie Niall as District Commissioner up to 1964. There is no mention of Alan (?) Timperley who was the next District Commissioner. Sadly Mr Timperley passed away in the mid 1960's and was buried at the old cemetery the was at the shore-end of the old Lae Drome. The reason I know all this is that Mr Timperley's youngest son was in my primary school class. I believe Mrs Timperley is still living in Brisbane. My mother found this booklet amongst some old documents and sent it up to me last year. Regards Scott Martin
