Title: Columbus Square, Trinidad B.W.I.
Abstract: This photograph of Columbus Square 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 in the middle of the square surrounded by a beautifully manicured lawn, large trees, shrubs and palms, corner of Independence Square and Duncan Street, Port of Spain. The iron statute at the top of the monument was a gift from Hippolyte Borde, an affluent local cacao planter and merchant and it stands in a large round fountain safeguarded by a high iron fence and closed gates.
