Some of the vintage chattel homes can still be see across the island. It is understood that these wooden homes keep you cool in the hot weather, and older folk shy away from leaving them.

  1. Hmm. You know I can't recall ever seeing a chattel house like this. Is this like a row house? Or is that just one home.

  2. That is one house, Ann. That is a view from the side. This is a special one; it has a lovely front porch enclosed area.

  3. Yup, the big thing is selling food from the house now. Well, it has always been that way. Fridays and Saturdays folks go looking for pudding and souse. For me, it is fish and fried breadfruit.
