Barbados has lost a son today. And as a son of the great nation Barbados myself, I feel the pain like my fellow countrymen. No matter your political affiliation, religion, economic standing, or social position, please join me in sending condolences to family of the late David John Howard Thompson, the sixth Prime Minister of Barbados.

Undoubtedly when you see a pair of pants hanging from a galvanize pailing your first thought is what on God's earth is it doing there. Was it discarded? Was it washed and then hung out? And why would it be hung outside the galvanize pailing? I cannot answer any of those questions. But I do know it was a good subject for a photographer as I walked through the Garden Land.

* pailing - the zinc-metal galvanize used for walls of the yard, or roof of the house.

Brooklyn West Indian American Day Carnival 2010

(09-06-2010)

The Brooklyn West Indian American Day Carnival celebrated 43 years of existence this year. So you won't find me talking about the shortening of the parade route. Or the immense feeling of restriction applied by the Police Force. If I didn't know any better I would venture to say the Forces (that be) are trying to end one of New York City's most festive parades, even though it is attended by hundreds of thousands of faithful fans.

Tamarind Lane

Tamarind Lane

St. Michael, Barbados

Series: A Walk through the Garden Land
(07-23-2008)

There was a very big old two story Soft Stone house where this little park is in Tamarind Lane. An old eccentric white man use to live there. All the kids in the Lane knew him as "Happy". Apparently that grand house was demolished when Happy died.

To the far right you will find the Old Probation Office. Actually, it used to be the home of the Rector for the Moravian Church in Roebuck Street. This was in my Dad's time. The middle yellow two floor building is the Old Welfare Office. I have many stories about that place but it is not for this post. Finally, to the back in the far left you will find the famous Old Sugar Bond. Many evenings on my way home from Roebuck Primary School I would stop there and get sugar for my tamarinds. But I wasn't the only one, all the boys did it.

I Walked This Land


How many times have
I traversed these small roads with
My Barefoot black by the Sun and tar
Many times I went to the shop
For sugar and salt, maybe a soft drink
Whistling with marbles in patched pockets
I wonder who was watching me
Saying, that wicked boy can't stand home
Not knowing I was in Heaven
My thoughts were of shooting doves
With my brute of a Gutterperk
My cares were not on the holes in my pants
I didn't care, I was walking the Land
I was being who I was
A Garden Land Boy...

Garden Land Memories

Garden Land Memories
Brooklyn, New York
Series: Gutterperk in Brooklyn
(04-18-2009)

If you were a kid growing up in the Garden Land Barbados, then your main concern would have been hunting Doves. To do that you would need a gutterperk or wait for Carl Downey to give you a bird he shot. To compliment the dove you would need a Breadfruit, preferably roasted, and to top it off a JU-C to wash it all down. By the way I prefer a red JU-C.

This collage of images says it all. And as you could imagine it brings back loads of memories. Garden Land memories...what a time I had.

Gutterperk in Brooklyn
Brooklyn, New York
Series: Gutterperk in Brooklyn
(04-18-2009)

Call me crazy, but I prefer you to call me a big kid. I was walking along Dorchester and saw a broken limb on the sidewalk. Immediately, I saw that I could break a gutterperk fork from the tangle mess of broken branches. Without hesitation I did so. I took my new found gutterperk fork home and took the bark off, and then I left it to dry.

An old shoe tongue provided the leather I needed to make the holder to catapult the rock. Last but not least, the 99 Cent Store enabled me to get the power for my gutterperk, the rubber bands. Without the rubber bands the gutterperk is useless.

Now before you get to thinking I am here in Brooklyn shooting birds, it isn't so. I am working on a project and it requires some images of a gutterperk. And since I did not have one, the only option was to make one. So, there you are.

The little boy in me wants me to travel back in time to that safe place called the Garden Land and shoot a few doves. But I am too old now and I know better. That is, unless someone is prepared to pay me a million dollars to bring me out of retirement, LOL.

This stunning view reveals the architectural beautiful Anglican Church, St. Joseph Parish Church. Located at the base of Hackleton's Cliff, this church was constructed after much debate about its location in 1839. Prior to that, the church was destroyed by a powerful hurricane in 1831. The original church was built sometime before 1641.

St. Michael's Masonic Lodge

St. Michael's Masonic Lodge

Pine Road, St. Michael
Barbados, West Indies
Series: Masonic Lodge on Pine Road
(07-30-2007)

My love for walking Barbados is extreme. So much so, the heat of the day never seems discourage me. And like any other day, my wondering feet found me on Pine Road. The old Masonic Lodge caught my eye and I crossed the road to have a closer look. Some folks were hanging around the entrance, so I asked a few questions. But I could not gain entrance to take pictures of the interior. I had to settle for shooting the exterior.

This architectural beauty of limestone and soft-stone was built sometime around 1888. The Lodge was constituted on the 15th of May, 1888. But in the facade to the front of the building is engraved with 1892. Not sure what that date is for.

As of today the Masonic Lodge (St. Michael's Lodge) has been sold. Let us hope the building is not torn down for some crazy condo project or something of the like. Maybe, just maybe, it can be restored and uses as a museum or some commercial business offices.

To My Viewers

For those of you who accidentally landed on this blog, welcome. And for the folks that came out of your own desire, thank you for your continual support. The direction of this blog has not changed. The idea is still to bring you old Barbados as I see it. Old Barbados is disappearing every day, lost in a new changing Barbados.


I have loads of images to compile, edit and post. So bear with my tardiness. My work is solo. There is no sponsor, so my travels and photography equipment are funded entirely by me. But my heart is in the right place. I love Barbados with every fiber, and I hope you get lost in my post of Barbados. Some images mean a lot to me, and I hope they mean a lot to you as well.


Keith H. Clarke
