It is saddening to reflect that no great ancient races inhabited these lovely Isles, that no great man ever lived, and laboured, and worked, and fought, and died, and left a name for posterity to honour and to cherish as a ‘household word’; that no time-honoured tower or world-famed temple, or pilgrim haunted shrine ever stood on yonder cape—in short, that the past is all a blank.

Belize City Southern Foreshore before the sugar warehouse, pre Hattie, circa 1950's

Government House is about 100 yards behind the photographer. At times when the sea was rough, you would find sea horse on the wall. Some of the boats that docked in the area were Kitty, Robin, Miss America, Marie B, Winnie, Kipper, Shirley, and a few more..

Brian Keating: The real white fence was my G'parents home (Stansbury), to the left of that fence is Palm Lane and to the right of that fence is a small alley that leads to Jim Waight's and what was at that time C N Fraser's home, and to the right of the alley (looks like 3 small people standing) was our home.

This big house resembles a house where two white sisters use to live. I believe that they had called them Paper doll. Dean Street ended before or after. And in the middle of the lost block of Dean Street was a gasoline company office and Guy Nords house on the other side of the street. Can’t recall the company’s name, it might have been Gulf Gas Co.

On the little island right out there some of the fishermen that came in at night would moor their boats there until morning to pull up at the market.

Foreshore area circa 1935. Penny Keating: The Wade's house then my grandmother (with the garage but set far back) and my parents.

Carlos Miller: The house on the left was a boarding house, circa 1950-51 when my family and I lived there. When I returned to Belize, circa 1990, it was headquarters for Shell Oil - Belize. Coincidentally, at that time I was wrapping up a 30-year career with Shell Oil - US.
