SOME HISTORIC SITES IN JAMAICA

Below you will see the initial photos for what is planned to be an extensive collection of photos of historic sites in Jamaica. This is a young country and so “historic” is less impressive than it would be in countries that are thousands of years old. However, these sites may be of interest as reflections of different aspects of Jamaica during “much earlier days”.

(Note: Click on any of the pictures below and it will expand to give you a more close-up view . After reviewing each photo, return to this screen by closing the window that contains the close-up image.)

To the left is a good contrast between the old and new methods for conveying small volumes of products -- see the foot-propelled cart in the foreground. This photo comes from Port Antonio, where several elements of the "old Jamaica" are viewable. To the right are some Port Antonio shops, showing a building design that goes back to the early 1900s.
