Description Road scene, Lautoka, Fiji - postcard. "This was a well-known Lautoka road near the sugarmill, with its avenue of Flame (a.k.a. Flamboyant) trees. The line of houses on the left belonged to the CSR (Colonial Sugar Refining) Company and were used for housing personnel. The dress of the four Fijian women is typical of the period and the yoked pair of zebu-cross working bullocks also typical of those used for most of the heavy work in and around the canefields at that time."
Date not later than 1956 (according to source page: message on back reads in part "all best wishes for 1957")
