Photograph Exhibit Opens at San Pedro's House of Culture: Kay Scott's "Village Life"

Kay Scott, a busy nurse in Canada, took a vacation to Ambergris Caye in 1982. A high school had just opened�all the homes were made of wood and stood on stilt and tourism was just starting�

She fell in love with the tiny fishing village and moved here that very year. She had taken a course in photography in Canada and brought along her camera. But to make ends meet, she picked up all sorts of jobs (as many of us do on the island) - she was a bartender, she did some accounting work and she worked for San Pedro's very first newspaper - the "Coconut Wireless". At that time referring to the telegraph�not Wireless internet.

Here is the SUPER interesting article about the History of Newspapers in San Pedro - SO worth a read. I wish the pictures worked!

Kay could be seen around town taking pictures of village life. As Minister Heredia said last night - a pretty young girl with a camera. Kay would take the photos and have the film sent to Belize City for developing.
