The Skyline Drive-In and Wards were my home .. literally ... we lived in the house to the right of the ticket box drive ways and my father managed both Drive-In and Wards. I too remember our trips to Steamships especially waiting at the car and picking up the falled pods from the trees that grew outside, I cannot for the life of me remember the name of the Tree, but it dropped these long brown "pods" like giant pea pods, and the sticky fruity seed inside was yum. Something like Tamarine comes to mind, but that could be totally wrong. This was of course way before your time. I was born in Port Moresby in 1960 and we left in 1973.
Thank you for sharing your memories

Hi Jaybee
I have to say a big THANK YOU for these photo's of the Drive-in and Wards. This was home to me, my father Allan Thorpe was the manager of initially just the Drive-in and then the brand new Wards Cinema in all its purple and gold glory. We lived our last years in the house opposite Wards on the other side of the Skyline Drive-way. I was not allowed to remove any photo's of that time in my life other than a couple with my friends, following my fathers death. So having these mean the world to me Also reading your memories as well make me smile as they are so familiar to me
Regards
Debbie Flynn (nee Thorpe)
