West Indies (archipelago)
Found in 1045 Collections and/or Records:
Contains slides covering most of the major islands of the group, both associated states and dependent territories. One relates to Marnham's official duties, the launch given to St Kitts in 1972.
[It seems likely that both Marnham GG/26 and Marnham GG/27 were taken in the same area, and as Marnham must have returned to St Lucia soon after, as 5-6 - see CC - were taken at Ciceron, it seems probably that they were of Barbuda, where the latter photographs of the previous film were taken, rather than Bequia on St Vincent].
146 x 115 mm. View looking along rows of seedlings growing under cover. The caption on the reverse reads 'La Pastora has 40 propagating units consisting of sand-tanks for cutting and potting areas.

Includes material on Universities throughout the Commonwealth of Nations.
A series of photographs relating, as the title suggests, to the areas of communication, commerce and industry. The title was chosen by the National Library of Jamaica, and is one of those based on the headings used for the sections of the 'Commonwealth in Focus' exhibition.
Pamphlet by N.D. Davis.
Loose papers and one newspaper from Patrick and his son James Colquhoun's correspondence files. RCMS 263/1-9 have a cover headed 'Nevis 1820' and RCMS 263/11-31 are in a similar cover '1832 West Indies'. Each has a note of contents, but these do not tally exactly with the items now present.
Contains slides taken chiefly in Ciceron and its grounds. Slides have been renumbered but arrangement in the file remains as per the original typescript catalogue.
Contains slides all in Kodachrome mounts. Only a few of these show St Vincent itself; the majority are of the Grenadines including several of Mustique. Slides have been renumbered but arrangement in the file remains as per the original typescript catalogue.
Reprint from 'The Argosy' article by Davis, Dec. 1904.
