Looking back in time

A buccaneer and some wenches enjoy the downtown festivities.

Everyone talks about the ‘good old days’ when times were simpler. Take a look at this picture from yesteryear and see if you can spot places, people and scenes you recognise. Was one of your relatives there for this event?

Pirates Week of old
This photo shows local revellers enjoying Pirates Week in George Town back in the day. The costumes are not as elaborate, but clearly these buccaneers were having a ball.

If you have some old photos that you’d like to submit, we’d love to see them to consider them for publication. Be sure to include the credit for the image and any information you have about it. Email to [email protected].
