Box 17: Photo Album: Holiday in Jamaica, photographed by George Hunter, 1950sAdd to your cart.
Folio. Spiral bound red cloth titled gilt. 39 large (approximately 9.5"x9.5") glossy black and white gelatin silver prints mounted on oak tag leaves. Pictures centered around a luxurious vacation in Jamaica in the mid-to-late 1950s, several of the images set at the San Souci resort. The images feature attractive looking vacation-goers drinking around a pool or walking on the beach, shopping, a pool side Caribbean-style band, rafting, a few harbor and fishing village images, workers harvesting cane sugar cane or hauling banana by oxen, natives working on woven rugs and hats, and other pictures of both vacationers and indigenous people working. We know little about the photographer George Hunter other than he was obviously professional or very accomplished. A slick but pleasing view of Jamaica as a vacation spot.
