Garden Land, Country Road
St. Michael, Barbados


This old soft stone great house was an Old White Men Retirement Home. The building is older than my grandmother (90+). The property is no longer a Retirement Home. And in the latter years a few black faces could be seen beyond the gates.

When I was a boy we use the climb the fence on the right side of the property to access the mango trees. Uhmmmmm, the mangoes were very sweet.

  1. My grandfather use to live in one of the little 4 cottages to the right of this building. This picture brought back some memories.

    Your photos are all very beautiful.

  5. I know you now have a book, but didn't know the book was published when you posted the previous comment, "Maybe some day I will write a book". :-/
