Archives from the District Commissioners basement

District Commissioners Office on Salt Cay

District Commissioners Office on Salt Cay

In the summer of 2014 the basement at the DC’s office underwent a ‘cleanup’. With permission, some of the old records were rescued and carefully cleaned and scanned by Candy Herwin. The papers were filthy, very brittle and not at all easy to work with. Here are some samples from a box, showing tidbits of the salt industry in 1942. Enjoy this depiction of life on Salt Cay during salt industry operations. Fascinating ! Well done Candy!
