If you live in a rural area of Barbados, then more than likely you know of some house that sells soft drinks (drinks, soda). The price may be a few cents more than in the supermarket. But who is going to complain. It sure beats driving some distance to a major food outlet.

We wanted some cold cokes so went into the shop. To our surprise the shop keeper said the cokes for people buying rum. And he was serious. We got no cokes.

This lovely two story building at the corner of Nelson Street and Bay Street has some lovely architecture. The enclosed shuttered attached area must have been used in the past for having tea and the like. The verandah is also modest in style with its three entry doors.

I am 50% positive that this old soft-stone or limestone structure once housed one of the early Telephone Exchanges on the island. Unfortunately, this building no longer exists. It was bulldozed making way for something new.
