The other day my mother was cleaning up some of here old photographs and she stumbled upon some interested ones. Naturally I had to scan them and post them here. I really love history, especially of this island. I feel that the preservation of these pictures are crucial. Now that I’m releasing this post to the world wide web, it will be preserved for ever.
The first images depict her relatives – mine, too – walking towards Eagle Beach. In those days the bushes were almost impenetrable, thus required good shoes and a good dose of patience to reach Eagle Beach. Notice the thick vegetation in the backdrop of the image. Now Eagle Beach is much narrower and there’s a parking lot.
Below picture with the car shows a freshly paved read near Eagle Beach. In that time people were ecstatic with the new road. It marked progress for most islanders. The picture shows my mom, aunts and uncles, with my grand father in the right side of the picture. Look at the vegetation there. Isn’t that something?
