San Ignacio 1954. Main Street (now Burns Avenue), Galvez houses, also the first land rover

These were the Galvez houses, only one survived the big fire in 1972 and is still standing, which houses the Tai San restaurant today.

This 1954 picture also shows, the first land rover in San Ignacio, belonging to Don Polo Silva of Carmelita Farm.

It was used to transport cow's milk, from Carmelita Farm to Mr. Fred Hunter Dairy Industry at Trinidad Farm, Belize District.

Dino Gutierrez: I believe the street was named after Governor Burns (a British man and governor of British Honduras) when he visited the towns in the 1930s. Before that it was called Main Street. Was not named after any Burns family of Belize. The Burns from Cayo lived at the end of the street almost by the cemetery.

Emil Steve Sabala: I thought it's because of Hodes grand parents. Maybe I'm wrong.
