Raising phosphate at Nauru Island.
A large piece of rock phosphate comes up in the clamshell bucket of the excavator.

The gigantic No. 2 Cantilever Loading Unit at Nauru Island, photographed from seaward, with its two arms swung inshore. With this ingenious loading device, it takes only five hours to load 12,000 tons of phosphate into the holds of a vessel moored 200 feet away from the seaward edge of the coral reef which encircles the island.

The loading bridge at the island railhead of the B.P.C. railway system on Nauru, with phosphate being tipped from a motor truck into the hopper in which it is screened and undergoes preliminary crushing and is then discharged into the rail freight car below.

A locomotive and a rake of loaded trucks arriving at the cliff face railhead at the delivery end of the one mile of rail track.

"Smoko" for some members of the B.P.C. indentured labour force, working on the loading bridge at Nauru.

  

  

Articulated transporter buses carry members of the B.P.C. indentured labour force on Nauru and Ocean Islands to their work in the phosphate fields.

My Wish
by Jane Resture
The frigate bird
The flying fish
It is time for us
To make a wish
 
And I wish for the sunrise
To be beautiful each time
With days that are perfect
And nights so sublime
 
And I wish for the sunset
To be like a long red sail
Each and every day
And you and I will always stay
Whatever we wish
Will surely come true
And I wish for happiness
For me and you
 
And I wish for the world
To live in peace
To live and love as one
To a simple beat
 
And I wish for us all
To have our lives full of love
Full of joy and happiness
And eternal love
