Old Years at SWWTU

I storming it

This large facade that faces Wrightson Road, Port of Spain is the Seamen and Waterfront Workers Trade Union (SWWTU). The tiled and seamless mosaic illustrates a streamliner entering the Port of the Capital. It is one of the most recognized signs of a period when Trinidad and Tobago had great vision for her future.

But in less then 48 hours, just beyond this building, to the SWWTU hall, couples will be dressed up in their best garb to ring in the New Year to 2008. May the nation show compassion towards its people.

Storming a fete : Many years ago, one of the local newspapers captured the backside of a woman skimming over a wall. From the photograph it was clear that this was an important venue to attend. She wore a lovely evening dress with large clog shoes.
