Title: Bamboo Arch. Maraval Road, Trinidad, B.W.I.
Abstract: This photograph of Maraval Road from the period when Trinidad was under British rule, illustrates how the tall, lean bamboo stalks crossed one another to form graceful arches over the Maraval road of this era. There is other vegetation in the photograph but the arched bamboo is the focus of the photograph. There are a few poles off the road at left and right but no electricity lines are visible. Perhaps they may be camouflaged by the mass of leafy trees. The unpaved road at center has four carved grooves, probably the product of the wheels of a vehicle. One lone, well dressed cyclist poses legs crossed resting on his bicycle for the photograph. He wears a black, buttoned-up coat that makes a v-like shape at top and bottom, a white handkerchief in his left upper jacket pocket, a white shirt and pants and possibly a hat. The title of the postcard ‘Bamboo Arch. Maraval Road, Trinidad, B.W.I.’ is written in a cursive script. The publisher is Stephens Ltd., Trinidad. In the area mapped out for the stamp are the words “Inland ½ d. Stamp Foreign 1 d.
