Geoffrey OrrIt is the old MH's which was still there when you were born and when we all left Fiji in 1974. It replaced the original wooden building which would have been built in the first J M (later Sir Maynard) Hedstrom's time. He, not his father, founded MH at Levuka together with an American, Morris, who went back to the States. Nicholas Samuel Hedstrom (NSH) who had been Harbour Master in Levuka took up that post in Suva when the capital moved there and lived in the Harbour Master's house on the old hospital hill which is no longer there, having been levelled. Upon retirement NSH moved back to Levuka. His son built the house at Tamavua which became the Australian High Commission. The locality of the photo is the Suva your mother knew as a young girl. She can tell you more.

Abel Caine FijiBula to the amazing Fiji Museum Team, would it possible to plot these points on open-source or Google Maps so hikers can visit? Small, potential opportunity for hiker/tourism revenue.

Fiji MuseumBula vinaka Abel Caine Fiji. Thank you for valid point raised. The Fiji Museum Archaeology Team uses GPS and google earth to map sites. However, putting these on open-source would require consent from the traditional site custodians. Access to sites would require their consent as well. An area we are working on at present is advisory given to site custodians/owners on touristic opportunities (as you had alluded to above) but at the same time maintain a balanced and vanua-based approach in all these. Vinaka.
