Title: [Road to constabulary, St. James, Trinidad, B.W.I.]
Abstract: On the way to constabulary in St. James. The St. James Barracks was erected in 1824 to house British troops who were to guard against insurrection whenever the abolition of slavery came to be. Then, its location was thought to be isolated, far from Port-of-Spain to conceal it and make it inaccessible. Here we see a host of young Samaan trees blocking the view of the barracks. In 1890 Secretary of State for the Colonies recalled the troops and today the barracks are a place where police men and women are trained. Many of the Samaan trees still exist today.
