This book of Cook’s Voyages was printed in 1790.  It was in a lovely colonial house we bought in 1975 whilst on leave in Western Australia from teaching in Papua New Guinea.  I confess I have not read the whole book of 406 pages  and it is the only time I have seen the spelling showing s letters as f letters.  Interesting.
A couple of pages for you to practice your Fs an Ss.

A wedding

Indian neighbours are having a wedding ceremony today. Guests and the wedding party are to be escorted by four Ford Mustangs; or so it would seem.

Wartime wreckage, Rabaul.

Pic of a Japanese (?) landing barge in Rabaul Harbour Papua New Guinea.   Note the radial engines.  Taken by me in 1961.
