Old drawing of Hope Town Harbour

This drawing of Hope Town Harbour was given to me by Vernon Malone. It's titled General View of Hopetown, Abaco, Bahamas. Note the spelling of Hope Town. By the looks of the sailboats I would guess it's sometime in the 1800's. It's signed either A. Stem or A. Stom. Please feel free to leave your comments if you can add any information as to the date.

For better viewing, click photo to enlarge.

Children's Easter Parade

This was clipped from The Abaconian newspaper about six years ago. The caption reads: St. Francis de Sales School held an Easter Parade on March 26. It was a competition and also allowed the children to dress in their Easter clothes so parents and friends cold admire them.
