dc.description.abstract Several people linger on the pitch at the Pitch Lake, La Brea, south west Trinidad circa 1907. Numerous trees, coconut palms being in the majority, are spread across the horizon. The Pitch Lake is the largest natural deposit of asphalt in the world. It was discovery by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1595. It is mined for asphalt and is a fascinating tourist attraction. en
