This is the Papa (James) Blake House. It was his private residence. One of the sons in law ( Akenhousen) opened the first bar then John Bremekanp expanded, and then hotel and more.

Crusher was my brother and yes he had the Sea Turtle Gift Shop right there. He and john were like brothers. Indeed Holly was here even before the hotel and restaurant business. The Crusher's sons did the best pizza on the island, something i would like to see at the now Sea Turtle place. Long live the memory of Blake House which lived over 100 years before it was man.

This photo may not be from the fifties when I first saw the Blake House but is probably the oldest photo I have. Taken by my father who first brought us to British Honduras (at the time) in the fifties. He and my mom adored San Pedro and made their home there for many years. We stayed there during our first visit to San Pedro in 1957-58.
