Lower Main Street

I took a walk down Main Street the other day, one of my favorite parts of Road Town. No longer the vibrant center of commerce it once was, I imagine it represents what most of Road Town looked like thirty or forty years ago, before the advent of offshore banking and cruise ships. Here are some photos from the lower part of Main Street.

Sunny Caribbee Spice Shop is kind of a cornerstone of Main Street, located as it is at the only real bend in the road. Their fresh and dried herb and spice selection is extensive.

GoodFellas ... Shoe Store? Many of the shops on Main are painted vibrant colors, but so too are many of the living spaces above the stores.

What exactly are the daily tasks of the Commissioner of Oaths?

Such pretty gingerbread trim.

Some important Club or Association was at the top of these steps.

Maybe a Broncos fan lives here?

This is the Pre-Colombian branch of the BVI Folk Museum

This vine put me in mind of Sweet Pea -- probably a sub-tropical relative.

  1. I would love to know what the minister of oaths really does...does he swear in new citizens or does he approve of egads and zounds????
