Tharp house and wharf, Falmouth

The original owner of this house was John Tharp. It is at the northern end of Tharp Street, Falmouth, Jamaica, and it now houses the offices of the Collector of Taxes. The wharf which was contructed directly in front of the house is in the next photograph.


Sea gulls now watch over the remains of what was once a busy wharf.

To the east of that wharf, sits another relic of days past. The bustling wharf is now just a skeleton.
