Hatchet Bay Caves, Eleuthera.

(therumelier.com collection)

A visitor to this historic cave at Hatchet Bay, Eleuthera in the Bahamas, refreshes himself from a natural basin into which cool, clear water has seeped from the cave's roof. The cave, which is about a mile long, has three levels and is divided up into vast rooms ringed with stalactites and stalagmites and lofty pillars. (The man in the picture is Don Stewart of Hatchet Bay Plantations, Eleuthera.)

Hatchet Bay Caves, Eleuthera.

(therumelier.com collection)

"Two visitors to this ancient cave at Hatchet Bay, Eleuthera in the Bahamas pause in their tour of exploration to admire a stalactite and stalagmite which have almost completely joined to form a pillar. In some such retreat as this the Eleutherian Adventurers, Pilgrim Fathers of the Bahamas, lived and worshipped when they first landed at Eleuthera to attempt the first permanent settlement of these islands, 300 years ago. (The men in the picture are, left, Bill Ralston and Frank Weiss, of Hatchet Bay Plantations, Eleuthera.)"

Heart's Ease, Governor's Harbour, Eeuthera.

(therumelier.com collection)

"Indicative of the development in progress at Governor's Harbour, Eleuthera, Bahamas --- once a remote settlement --- is this scene at the new cottage colony built by R.T. Symonette of Nassau. Called "Heart's Ease", the attractive guest houses , on Hut Point, a short distance from Governor's Harbour, look from their terraced hillside upon the magnificent beaches of Eleuthera. Regular plane service to Governor's Harbour and regular boat service to Hatchet Bay are stimulating interest in the picturesque Out Island of Eleuthera, where a number of distinguished visitors already have bought property and built homes."

"It appears to be a photo taken from the porch of the old clinic, which is now the office for the Bo Hengy. It shows a view of the backyard of the Landing (which you might know as the Picaroon Landing) with a slight view of the government dock, and of course the bay and harbour. I think this building is still government owned. Sometime ago the clinic was on the ground floor, and the nurses residence was on the second floor. I don't know who occupied it before it was a clinic. The building is now occupied by Bahamas Fast Ferries. The doctor's residence is adjacent to this building but to my knowledge has been vacant for years in need of repair."
