1968 was an important year in the life of Carriacou. It was the beginning of the road to independence. Eric Gairy and the Grenada United Labour Party (GULP for Action) had been elected to Parliament in 1967. The airport was opened and Bishops College was showing itself as an educational establishment of some renown. I was lucky enough to teach there from September 1967 to July 1968. I was keen to record the events during my time in Carriacou and took hundreds of photographs.
I recently purchased a clever scanner which allows me to copy all the negatives and view scenes that had lain in a drawer for over 40 years. I sent examples to old friends in Carriacou and received a number of positive responses and a demand for more.
So Sarana, this is for you. I hope many other Carriacouans will find the photos of interest. I would like people to add any comments to fill out gaps in my fading knowledge. Most of all I just want people to enjoy the chance to view old scenes and chat.
