From this photograph we get a glimpse of village life in Toco, Trinidad. A variety of trees and houses line the wide, inclining, road. They cast large shadows on the road. On the left at mid-ground is a simple, galvanize roof held up by three, straight poles. Massive, concrete steps emanate from this and cascade into the road. On the right the louvered doors of another house can be seen. The rest of the structure is hidden by a gigantic, fruit tree. A crouched man stands in the middle of the road near the horizon. Behind him is a fully grown coconut palm. All that can be seen of the other houses, located slightly down hill near the horizon, are their Caribbean-styled, roof tops.
