I am still looking for a location to put on a slide show during July 5 - 8. I have around 200 slides of people, places and faces around Calabash Bay from 1983 to 1985.
Is the women's center available?
You can contact them directly at tbwgjamaica.com to find out. Please let us know as soon as you have secured a place so we can let folks know where and when via this forum.
I tried contacting them at that website but I can't access it.
I'll try to call them today and find out what is happening.
I just got off the phone with Susan at the Women's Group and she will email you.
Thank you! I just returned her e-mail.
Stuart has put his slide show online for all to see.

Wow Stuart your slides are absolutely amazing.You have captured something unique and special.They look like they were taken quite a while ago.May we have some history and background on them and who you are and what you were doing in the area at the time.I especially like the one of dear Zim in the fishing boat in the water!
Maximum Respects to you Stuart.Leonora.
This is the collection of photos from Calabash Bay that were taken between 1983 and 1985 when I was stationed there as a Peace Corps volunteer.
Amazing! Thanks Stuart for taking us back down memory lane, I always try to remember what the old Postal Agency looked like, and our elders, some of whom have already passed, God bless their souls.
Oh Stuart, these are just great! How fun!! I can't wait to show them to my friends and have a great laugh and trip down memory lane.
Thank you so very much for sharing these with us.
These are great photos. And what a great experience to see people I've just met in the two years I've been visiting TB (Morris, Mr. Graham, Huxey, etc.) and to see them as they looked 25+ years ago. Wild!
Oh My Stuart thank you for taking us down memory lane- oh these pictures are wonderful- oh mu God Treasure Beach was so peaceful back then. Joe Bowl, and Glen Leg what great memories. Oh I can watch this over and over. Rebecca can you archive this under Memory Lane- hopefully other will send in some more pictures
Hi Stewart thank for taking us down memory lane once again just amazing! growing up in TB my best friend was mas Bowie Graham he look so young in the picture, also Zim god bless them all.
I would like to see some of the old pictures from Sandy Bank Primary, I know they have some great class pictures from back in the days. It would take a lot of time and effort to work on this project - if I were in TB, I would definitely assist.
Thanks Stuart, now the picture with the kids getting ready to race, was that Teacher Stain or Michael J? (lol)
I will soon post another set of slides. The first set is the best of the collection though.
Stuart - great photos but I note many are shown in reverse! Any way of turning them right way round?
Thank you for the memory. Absolutely amazing...
Thank you so much for sharing these pictures. These are priceless. Those pics are what Treasure Beach really was about...The good ole days, they brought back wonderful memories..especially the character of each individual. Thank you!!
Nuff respect Stuart for taking us back twenty plus years. I have one outstanding memory of you.
When you just got to Treasure Beach I was doing electrical wiring on the house you would be staying. The roof needed a painter, so you offered to do the job for free but when TB hot sun on that zinc roof hit you you came off that roof so fast and said "this job is too hard for free".We had a good laugh on that one.
Pictures are worth a thousand words !!!
Thank you Stuart for bringing back such warm memories of some of our beloved Treasure Beach people.I was so very happy to see some of our old folks who have passed on but are still fondly remembered by many.Uncle Joe Bowl and Uncle Haddon Deleon with his thatch hat and zinc pan going to Big Ground to water his cows.Thanks to you I can now show my daughter and some other family members what some of the people I so frequently talk about,really looks like.
oh my god this is really what you call back in the olden days these picture are great thank you stuart for the memories.keep them coming its a pity that we dont have some of these people with us today may god be with them all one love.
For sure I've recognized the pictures of my uncles Haddon and Bowl. Uncle Bowl would be happy to know that I still cherish the cutting board that he so cleverly carved for me. Thanks for the memories Sir.
Mas Asley Reynolds was a fine looking man. A still wonder how mas Joe bowl live to get from Calabash Bay many times... Mas Glen I don't now how he made it home also...any pictures of Big Yam? Reginald Clarke? Mas Vil Dicker?...may their soul rest in peace....
I have added a few more. When I get back home I will upload the rest of the slides.
can any one say who is the little girl beside mr reynolds?
I think that little girl is Fiona Moxam Betty and Peter Moxam daughter.
thank you homegirl i had a feeling but was not sure.
WOW, WOW, WOW this is so amazing. I totally forgot what some of these people look like until i saw these amazing pictures.
Stuart, thank you very much for these wonderful memories.
I have added more slides (about 60) to the collection.
Truly amazing. Thanks so much from all us that hadn't yet discovered how wonderful the people of Treasure Beach are.
Here is another slide show from Stuart.
Slide show does not work.
Scroll up to the original website at the top of this discussion.
You've a very good eye, and wonderful subjects.
A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR to you Stuart. Just wondering if you would happen to have any more of those wonderful pictures to drag our memories?
Good job Stuart, there are pictures that reminds me of my school and some of the older folks, just brings back good memories.By the way is the guy standing in front of the shop Erol Powell. Keep up the good work some of needs these kind of things to cheer us up. Bravo
Hi Stuart, was just looking at the pictures again, and the pic with the lady on the donkey that is labeled Miss Emlin, would that be Emlin Smith? If so thanks soooooo very much, that would be, among others, one of the most treasured pieces for me.
Hi cwa after I read your message I went insearch to find Miss Emlin Smith but I could not. I am a home town girl just as you are. our houses were very close.
WOW, I really enjoyed the pics. Seeing so many faces of loved ones, family friends, neighbours who have passed on, brings back memories of childhood. To see the young ones, now they all have kids or are all 'big people'. To see Morris (handsome guy), youth is such a blessing. I am sure I saw myself in Reynolds House, but then it looks like my niece, but wait, she was not born then, how can I get a close up of the Reynolds house pic. (Smile)
Thanks for the effort in doing this. Really appreiated.
Stuart, what beautiful memories.. I remember those awsome sunsets very well. I have never met you, but I use to hear my sisters, Vern and Clare talk about a lot. My mom thinks you are her son (smile). I see a few from Great Bay, and was wondering if you have any more......I would love to see them. Thanks
Responding to recent questions:
Unfortunately I don't have anymore photos of Treasure Beach - what you see is all I have.
Yes, that is Erroll Powell in front of his workshop. I remember when Wilton Graham had Erroll make all the shelves in the Fisherman's Group House.
Miss Emlin is the one on the donkey going off into the sunset.
ahmandat: If you send me your address I will try and enlarge the Reynolds House photo.
Thanks Stuart for the response about Ms. Emlin, she was my Aunt, thanks for the memory.
I have to say you have captured a part of my life that i remembered and miss dearly. I was a young boy when all this was happennig and i can not remember you. My dad (Stuart)can not believe i do not recall you. Those pictures of me are out of this world. I never thought pictures like that exist of me and dada (Swift) out there and how life was for me back then.
I am living in Toronto. I have 2 kids 5yrs old & 10 months old.
I would like to extend my hand and thank you again for this history in time.
I would love to talk to you some more and just catch up. This is a really special time.
Kirk i have been trying to email you but i cannot get through to you. I am one of your old class mates from Sandy Bank Primary school, it would be very nice to speak to you again.
Have you ever heard from Horatio? Hope to speak to you soon.
