I am loving this fantastic!

I agree Jamaican architecture is not appreciated enough esp within the UK. Particular favourite Is the Georgian buildings in the Falmouth Historic District. I saw a large collection small houses known for their unique gingerbread fretwork and jalousie windows, major merchant and planter complexes, and commercial buildings, all dating from 18th centrury.

I am due to be going Trinidad would love to share photos?
