The Dying Of an Old Building
Baxter’s Road, Bridgetown
St. Michael, Barbados
Series: A Sunday Walk Along Baxter’s Road to Bridgetown
If you have ever seen some of the wonderful and fantastic well kept old colonial buildings in Old Virginia then you know where I am headed with this one. Why not here on Baxter’s Road in lovely Barbados?
Well part of the problem is that some of these buildings are not owed by the government. They are, still to some extent, in the hands of the wealthy. They seem not to be interested in restoring these wonderful structures. With out racking the brain, it can be said they are more than likely waiting for some deep pocket developer to come along with some mega project. And you know the project will have no regard for history or its preservation.
Well, enjoy the image. We can never be sure when some of these old places will be under the wrecking ball.
