Fogafale: Then and Now  

The left image shows an aerial photograph of north Fogafale and south Tegako motu, taken by the United States military in 1943, after their base had been built.

The roads were constructed by the Americans, as was the causeway connecting the two islets.

The modern 2003 photo shows the many buildings that were built by the Tuvaluans in the past 15 years as the population of Funafuti grew.
