Wonderful building, nice presentation! Greetings.

Dear Mr Stehbens

I'm very excited to see your photos from Dingodingo in east Kwara'ae, as I stayed there several times from forty years ago and your friends there no doubt include some of the people I knew then but have mostly lost touch with in recent years.

At the moment I am in the final stages of writing a pictorial history of Malaita, which includes some of my own photos as well as many others from around the island, from the 1890s to the present. I would love to be able to include a few of your photos in the final chapter, which ends with a series of snapshots from the last ten years. Pictures of Dingodingo and Na'oasi and of one or two of the people there would make a marvellous retrospective conclusion to the book.

The book is to be published by the British Museum, where I work, and its purpose is to return some of Malaita's history to its people, as well as to show the island to the world. I would be pleased to send you pdf copies of the drafts to show what I am trying to achieve.

Perhaps you could contact me on either or both of my e-mail addresses: bburt@thebritishmuseum.ac.uk benburt@live.co.uk

I look forward to hearing from you,

Yours

Ben Burt

Yu are quickly! Thanks, Sonja!

Hi Ian. Mount Perry was actually my "stamping grounds" from 1964, the year i was born, to 1991. The last time i saw this crushing machine, i'm sure it never had any trees or bush around it. And am i right in remembering it was at the bottom of a hill, with long lengths of timbered beams or rails that ran down to the crusher. When i was young i used to venture out and explore the abandon mines, and even back then {i would have only been 8 or 9 yrs old} i used to marvel at all the old machinery, and wondered what they were used for. My parents bought the house between the post office and general store in the early 60's. The house itself, holds a little bit of history. It was once a bakery. Which still had the oven and all the accessories in it when they bought it.
