Abstract
The postcard shows Maqueripe Bay which is situated at the end of the Tucker Valley Road in Chaguaramas, Trinidad. The beach was a popular resort in the 1930's and 1940's but access was restricted in 1944 when the Trinidad and Tobago Government leased the area to the United States military. In the background of the postcard, changing rooms and bathroom facilities can be seen and in the foreground is the diving platform and a lounge chair.
