North Front Street in Belize City with banners to celebrate the coronation of King George V, June 1911

The photo must have been taken prior to 1920 on North Front Street. The first building on the left was where Paslow was built in 1920. The second building belong to the Biddle's and is where our current Post Office is. Mr. Biddle was formerly Captain Vidal who changed his name to Biddle because the locals had a problem pronouncing Vidal. The Biddles' house design was recreated at the Old Belize Museum. The third building is the Turton Library.

King George V reigned from 1910 to 1936, banners most likely put up upon news of the coronation.

The Biddle's Store was dressed to the max. There is a man and a woman on the second-floor veranda. They even had a flag coming out of their upstairs window. They were using the trees we use to decorate even up to today.

We still dress up the Biddle Building for the Tenth and Twenty first but the Union Jack is replaced by the Belize Flag. The Governor General observes the Tenth parade from that verandah every year. The administrative offices of the Post Office used to be on the second floor until recently when they moved to facilitate the renovation of the building. The parcel post and counter services were on the first floor. After it is renovated, the Post Office will be relocated back there.
