Wood Plank House, Barbados, 1907

Description

Roof of cane trash; kitchen extension on right. Although the photo is long after slave emancipation, the house closely resembles wooden plank houses with thatched roofs found among Barbados plantation slaves, particularly in the pre-emancipation (pre-1834/38) decades of 19th century.
