I love going through these images of Samoa during the German administration.
Here's a lovely tuiga photo, I have posted these without permission - have copied over the caption and where I shared it from:
In this photo a grey-haired Fatu Frost can be seen standing behind von Luckner and the taupou. Son Frederick Frost stands on the right. Fatu had a plantation, farm and shop in the village. He was given the tulafale title Leofo in the 1940s.

The Museum of Samoa is very pleased to announce the second installment of the online photo exhibition "To Walk Under Palm Trees - The Germans in Samoa: Snapshots from Albums". The exhibition is here: http://germansinsamoa.net/ (Part two begins here: http://germansinsamoa.net/part-2-start-here-2/).
Curated by Auckland researcher and writer Tony Brunt the second part presents another impressive collection of photos that tell the stories of German-Samoan families in nineteenth and twentieth century Samoa. The exhibition draws on family albums and photo collections and most images have never been seen before outside family circles.
