This photo shows tribes­men in the Mount Ha­gen branch of the Bank of New South Wales. At the time, be­fore elec­tronic bank­ing, peo­ple of­ten trav­elled great dis­tances to visit their bank branch. The Bank of New South Wales was Aus­tralia’s first bank, start­ing in 1817, and it opened for busi­ness in Pa­pua New Guinea in 1910. Now known as West­pac, it has 17 branches across the coun­try (in­clud­ing Madang), 58 ATMs and 2200 point-of-sale ter­mi­nals. West­pac shares the bank­ing land­scape in PNG with other ma­jor fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions, in­clud­ing ANZ, Kina and BSP.
