Ononge, Cen­tral Prov­ince, circa 1920s

From the late 1800s up to the 1950s, horses were loaded with sad­dle­bags by mis­sion­ar­ies to get sup­plies into the moun­tains. Hun­dreds of kilo­me­tres of tracks were cut through the rugged ter­rain to pro­vide ac­cess for the horses. Fa­ther Jules Dubuy, with the Mis­sion­ar­ies of Sa­cred Heart, took these pho­tos while he was sta­tioned at Ononge vil­lage in the Goilala District of Cen­tral Prov­ince. The in­set photo shows Fa­ther Alphonse Bonn tam­ing a horse. He was a mis­sion­ary and ex­pert horse­man, nick­named ‘ The Cos­sack’, be­cause he of­ten rode a stal­lion at full gal­lop. The im­ages were sent in by Fa­ther Roger Pur­cell, who is sta­tioned at Mount Ha­gen.
