For some reason I can only see the first picture. getting the dreaded red X. I'll try another browser or computer.

This is very cool!

B - Does the name Elton Richardson mean something to you????

Double click the red X and wiat a minute. one photo should come up and then you can go from slide to slide by putting your cursor over the upper right to open a "next" box. Also try right click to open link. It worked for me after a few tries.

yes, Elaine, I think i have heard of Elton Richardson LOL
click on the first small picture of the school. then you can use your computer arrow keys to scroll through the other pictures.
or just open the first one and point your mouse on the picture. Then click next.
some of the pics are inaccurate. in some places they posted a picture twice. and on some pictures of the houses, they have the wrong names of the owners.
but overall it is a collection of awesome old pictures of SXM

I did try to use the arrows, and it took me to picture two, with a different description - but the same picture! Then picture #3, another description - first picture again!

Got to play around with it a bit, it looks so cool! I'm surprised Elton has not mentioned this to you!

that's weird. why can't you see the rest of them?
you are clicking on the small picture of the school, right/?
then it shows bigger. then when you put your mouse on the picture and see next and you click next, you still see the school?
the next picture should be the gendarmerie in marigot

Just finished looking, amazing. picture I think 167 is that the bottom of the cole bay hill, so there was a roundabout there and when was it removed. What I also found interesting is in all the candid shots, all the ladies had dresses on, many with hats, and the men, all had pants on, no shorts!

Amazing. Thank you Philippe. And Barbara, Dee and I could be about the same age since I remember the bottom of Cole Bay Hill exactly the same. It was years later that I learned the road had a name. We just called it 'over the mountain'.
