 Item
Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y30771A/25

Scope and Contents

286 x 235 mm. A view showing the market square in Grenville crowded with Grenadans and with public buildings and the bay in the background : '...the town...is built on low-lying swampy land adjoining the beach of a large bay on the east of the island in St Andrew's parish, and is consequently not very healthy, so that all the better classes live on the hills to the west of the town ... The town has a handsome block of public buildings facing the jetty, a market-place, two churches, a plentiful supply of pure water, an agency of the Colonial Bank, a telephone exchange, and a small library; and the shops rebuilt since the great fire of 1886 are very creditable in appearance.' (Drayton 1896, pp 65-66).
