Nubukalou Creek in the 1940s.

Located in the heart of Suva’s central business district, the banks of the creek is home to renowned business enterprises including MHCC (formerly Morris Hedstrom, pictured on the left) and other prominent businesses like Tappoo City, apparently not constructed yet when this shot was taken. Numerous developments took place since then, resulting in a completely transformed view of the area as seen today.

Photographed by Robert Katzenberg (1919-2006), a US soldier stationed in Fiji with the United States Armed Forces between 1943 and 1944. Katzenberg's keen interest in photography captured fascinating scenes of Fiji using colour-transparencies. His collections of images captured during his posting to Fiji were recently donated to the Fiji Museum by his daughter, Barbara Katzenberg.
