The initial purpose of this set of pages was: to gather as many Internet links as could be found relating to St. Vincent and The Grenadines, my winter residence country. It can seem somewhat like a great mish-mash but each link has its own character. Try those you find interesting.

This is a continually growing entity of enchantment, definitely non-commercial, but intent on opening the world eye to both the novelty and delight of an emerging country. Enjoy your visit.

The book "The Picture Postcards of St. Vincent and the Grenadines" by Chin Aleong was a delight to review. It brings a special perspective to understanding the character of St. Vincent and the Grenadines during the first half of the 20th century. It should be part of any library with an interest in the history of the country.

THE PICTURE POSTCARDS OF ST. VINCENT AND THE GRENADINES

This book classifies and lists in 223 pages (18 x 21.5 cm), 456 picture postcards of SVG of which 233 have been illustrated, many in full colour. There is also a map and index of views. The book is printed on art paper, perfect bound with colour front and back covers. The first edition published in 2003, listed 415 postcards with 151 illustrated in 172 pages

The cards are from the period 1901 to about 1962 and descriptive and historical notes accompany many of them thus providing a unique pictorial and historical record of SVG. However, modern coulour cards, chromes, have generally not been listed.

The book should appeal not only to collectors of picture postcards but also to anyone interested in anyway whatsoever in any aspect of SVG - Vincentians at home and abroad, the younger ones who may like to get a glimpse of what SVG looked like - and also, of course, to visitors to the rainbow isle of St. Vincent.

The book is available from the author and publisher and Henry Gaynes in St. Vincent, telephone no. 457-1010 who can provide information on availability in SVG. The published price is US $32.00 per copy and to any destination outside the Caribbean is £20 or US$32.00 (£20) per copy. Postage to the Caribbean is US$8.00 (£5) per copy and to any destination outside the Caribbean is US$11.00 (£7) per copy.
