Stone House, Barbados, n.d.

Description

House made of coral limestone; thatching appears to be sugar cane trash. No date on photo, but very early 20th cent., perhaps late 19th. Although long after slave emancipation in the British West Indies, the house is very similar, if not identical, to one type of slave housing that became increasingly common in Barbados during the first several decades of the 19th cent.
