Title: Columbus Square
Abstract: This is a beautiful, historic, panoramic view of Columbus Square and its monument at the corner of Independence Square and Duncan Street, Port of Spain. The photograph might have been taken circa 1900-1910. The monument to Christopher Columbus: navigator; explorer; colonizer, who encountered Trinidad in 1498 on his third voyage, stands here amid large trees, shrubs and grass. The iron statute at the top of the monument was a gift from Hippolyte Borde, an affluent local cacao planter and merchant. It is set in a large round fountain safeguarded by a high iron fence.
