Brisbane II

Macarthur Chambersg: headquarters of Gen. Douglas Macarthur after the fall of Manila during the Second World War.

"The Fuzzy-Wuzzy Angel" -- a Papuan porter helping a wounded Australian soldier. This image is apparently as iconic as the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima. The Papuan's name is Raphael Oimbari, but the plaque simply refers to a "hardy dependable Papuan!"

World War I Memorial
The facade of the Cathedral of St. John reflected.
The austere nunnery that looks rather like a prison.
