More pictures of Levuka








from w
Four websites of interest that relate to Levuka are:
Fiji Museum
and Oceania ethnographica - pictures from 1840s to 1880s etc. for sale - photographs taken in Fiji, Samoa, Tonga and other islands.
Gutenberg - another site.
A travel diary about Levuka in the present day.

Some of the pictures I found interesting from those sites are placed here. One is of Levuka in 1842, another in 1870s, the Cession document in English, one of Prince Charles - perhaps a century later.

Levuka - Lomaiviti - people are tauvu to Macuata people. A connection that involves joking and a lot of put down, but I don't do that because Levuka is my favourite place.

Of Fly Catchers and hidden lakes.


Of sleeping lizards and morning dew.

It is of birdsong and misty dawns

and fleeced clouds floating in a still pool.


The waters ripple awake in the gathering morn.





The first water birds head out for the far shore.
