Bob Stone Corner

The town of Lucea in Hanover was decorated for the Coronation of King George VI in May 1937, as were other towns in Jamaica. The third in this series of photographs was taken at Bob Stone Corner. A Jamaican policeman walks in the center foreground. Girls in their school uniforms, and women in white, walk behind him. Banners wave across the street.


Main Street, Lucea

The fourth photograph was taken on Main Street, Lucea, which was also decorated, with bunting and flags. (The Union Jack was the flag of Jamaica at that time). Women in white at the end of the street were probably part of the parade.
