NEWSLETTER June 2008

Next Meeting – Just a brief reminder that our May meeting is scheduled for May 29th, 2008, at 6:00 pm. Jim Lawlor will be talking about "Shadrach Kerr: Priest and Missionary."

June Meeting – Our June meeting is scheduled for June 26th, 2008, at 6:00 pm:

A. Leonard Archer:
" 20th-Century Labour: Some Personal Perspectives."

One of the country’s best known diplomats, His Excellency A. Leonard Archer was also very active in the labour movement. The Bahamas Historical Society is honoured that he has now agreed to share some personal insights with our friends and members.

Museum of the Bahamas Historical Society – Shirley Street & Elizabeth Avenue
Thursday, June 26th, 2008, 6:00 pm – This presentation is free of charge.

Summer Break – Please be advised that the Bahamas Historical Society’s museum will be closed during the summer months of July and August. There will not be monthly meetings during this time either. We look forward to seeing you all again in September.

Do you recognise this? – In last month’s newsletter, we showed you an old photo of downtown Nassau. For those who did not recognise it: the photo showed the corner of Bay Street and Bank Lane. The building pictured no longer exists; now you can get rather expensive handbags on that corner’s shop… (Yes, it’s Gucci.)

This month, we are showing you an old sketch of an Out Island scene. Can you figure out what it shows?
