Paul Burnett’s Photo Gallery from 1967.

 

Paul Burnett has been living above Lauriston for the last 8 years. He wrote a comment on this site recently and in the ensuing conversation we realised we had both first arrived in Carriacou at the same time in September 1967. Paul stayed at the Mermaid Tavern. He took a number of rare and interesting photos around Carriacou, Grenada and Bequia. Paul posted a number of his photos to me and has agreed for them to be published on Carriacou 1968. If any of the photos resonate please do send in your comments and I will publish them and pass them on for Paul to read.

Nick Cox Your Parents at their wedding. That brickwork hints Hillsborough RC Church. Patrick Patsy Compton, Samuel Fleary. I am trying to figure out the two young boys. Possibly Charles and Samuel. Henry and Leroy were older and maybe left by then. The person behind Patsy Compton looks like Ben Coy. 12 June 2014 at 14:55 · Like · 1 Christopher Cudjoe Christopher Cudjoe You doing well with the adults 12 June 2014 at 15:07 · Like Nick Cox Nick Cox Th young girls seem to be no more than 10 years old.
