Regent St. near Cockburn Lane in Belize City, about 1916

This is Regent Street from in front of Old Governor's Residence towards the Supreme Court. The building on the left was Mr. Claude Bradley's residence. Still on the left second palm tree is where the Shaw Hotel is and across the Street is where Continental Airlines had their Offices.

This is by Government House. On the left was the Reyes Family and the other Mr Claude Bradley residence. That person on the right was painting the fence at Government House.

Cockburn Lane is perpendicular to Regent St on the east and Albert St on the west. Regent St was called Front St when I was small... in the fifties. And traffic flowed southwards at that time.

Cockburn Lane connected Albert proper with Albert St. West, it is a very short lane. Behind the female it says Cockburn Lane indicating that's how it ran. Taking the position of the young male you are looking north on Albert St. towards swing bridge. Where Cockburn ended in photo is now Fern's Lane connecting Albert to Regent. St John's Cathedral is behind the yong male person. Front St. is Southern Foreshore. This scene was still there before Hurricane Hattie in 1961. Most of it was destroyed by the Hurricane. It's estimated that 75% of the buildings in Belize City went down in the 1931 hurricane. So the yard facing the young lady is now the beginning of Fern's Lane heading east.

Everyone looks like they are wearing their Sunday best. They must have been leaving Mass at St. John's Cathedral.
