NEWSLETTER September 2008

Museum Re-Opened (and Temporarily Closed Again) Summer is over, and the museum was open, if only briefly. Like many other establishments on the island, we closed at noon today, and battened up the building. Waiting for the storm(s) to pass, we hope to re-open soon. Stay safe!

September Meeting – Our September meeting is scheduled for September 25th, 2008, at 6:00 pm – please note the location, as it is different to our usual meeting place:

Douglas Shephard:
"The Bahamas Lighthouse Museum."

Mr. Shephard of the Lighthouse Museum will not only show members and friends of the Bahamas Historical Society their museum, but he will also tell us about the important work of their organisation in preserving our nation’s historic lighthouses.

Bahamas Lighthouse Museum – East Street North
(between Bay Street and the waterfront)

Thursday, September 25th, 2008, 6:00 pm This presentation is free of charge.

Do you recognise this? – In last month’s newsletter, we showed you an Out Island scene. For those who did not recognise it: the sketch showed the salt operations on the island of Inagua; hence the white mounds in the picture.
     This month, we are showing you a Nassau street corner where sadly an historical building has just been torn down a few days ago. Do you know what it was?
     This month, we are showing you an old sketch of an Out Island scene. Can you figure out what it shows?
