I have served my country in all elected capacities. Mayor, Legislator, Minister of government and Senator. I was born a villager of Carmelita, todays Santa Familia. My hobby all my life has been to research and research in order to find the truth.
Mule and cart delivering cargo from stores in San Ignacio, early 1900's

These were the days, when Mule and Cart were the only means of transport in Town. This was the multi purpose mule cart. It picked up the garbage, was used in funerals to carry the coffin etc etc.

Mule and Cart were used to carry the cargo, from the Boat Wharf to the shops, I was told that the Mule & Cart on this picture, was owned by Mr Norman Broaster. And others included Mr Franklin and Mr Waight and others.. . Mr. William (aka Bill) Waight used to own a mule and cart that use to deliver water from the river to their home and do delivery for people.

This street or road was the way to Benque Viejo and beyond. Presently, here are two places that look alike to what they were One Hundred years ago. Donia Maria Habet Building where this Mule and Cart is delivering Cargo from the Boat Wharf and the House above on the right where the late Antonio Awe lived. (I think one of his daughters and Mitch Awe live.)
