BMD - Excellent post!!! How did you find this? Really liking the Kingston section...

Speaking of Kingston - Continuing my slightly disturbed fascination with Randy's Records on North Parade - I read somewhere that Randy's was once an ice cream parlor...

Still wondering if that's true and if there are any pictures of Randy's in the ice cream days...

Also - noticed one of the pictures on the site you posted mentions The Manor House as one of "The Coolest Hotel in the Vincinity of Kingston"

Are they using the term 'coolest' as in 'temperatures' or as in 'hip'?

Anyways - A+ fun with this post bmd...

nice photos...

some interesting stuff...see the one of the guy who produced it and his family? Not quite the affected colonials I had expected!

And what about the "coolies" at worship!!

'Coolies' here presumably refers to people from Asia.

Chinese???, this term was used for Chinese workers (for eg. on the Railway) in N.America, and of course there were lots of Chinese in's amazing how diverse the population of the Carribbean was and how mobile populations were. Panama has towns still that are almost exclusively Jamaican, there as decendents from workers who went to Dig the Canal, the first and second time. And reading about the early history of jamaica, and it's relation to Hispaniola (now Haiti and the Dominican republic I believe), Cuba, and all the islands in the chain, enthralling stuff.
there is just so much history to get stuck into there.

the caption on the website says "worship" but the caption on the photo itself says "warship" as if they are visiting a ship in port.
