Can you identify Banaban Elders in Historic Photos - PROJECT

Please post your old Banaban historical photos here so people can contribute information and help identify their family elders. Great way to build Banaban history from the people themselves and share these ''moments in time'' with the future generations.

 

Copyright of these images is held by the family or those who have posted the images to this site. Permission should be sought to reproduce or copy  these images. 

 

Thanks to Takaniko Kaitetara Ruabete for getting this project started:
