Title: Pitch Lake, Trinidad, B.W.I.
Abstract: Four men in hats linger on the pitch at the Pitch Lake, La Brea, south west Trinidad circa the turn of the 20th Century. One of them is holding a child in his arms. In the foreground of this picture are grasses and rain puddles. Numerous trees are spread across the horizon, interrupted by the triangular shapes of oil derricks. 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. Postcard number 8919.
