I was born at the Corner of calcutta Street and the Western Main Road in St James. I lived there for the first fourteen years of my leife before I moved to Carenage. St James, the place that never sleeps. The home of Hosay,all the great steelbands of yesteryear....North Stars, Synphonets, Crossfire, Tropoli, Sun Valley and Blue Stars (now calle T & Tec Power stars). The home of the Dog roti; the home of Rialto theatre where I saw all the Tazan and old western movies,all the Dracula movies and all the serial movies. Eggie would close the shutters and you know the movie was about to start. St James, the home of the Jc bottling factory at the corner of Long Circular and the western main Road. The home of Din Din (opposite Calcutta street) and the barracks (not the police barracks but the tattered house at the corner of Calcutta street where "bounce" mother sold corn and also the Barnetts whose mother also sold corn. The home of girl and boy school. The home of the first two pedestrian traffic lights installed in the late fifties or early sisties. The tram car on Long Circular road where Long Tennis was played. the home of the billiards opposite Delhi Street. The home of one of the first central schools built after the days of Exhibition exam and the introduction of the Common Entrance. Bunny Dwarika went there and I went to Tranquillity Intermediate. I have fond memories indeed. The place where pitching marble and flying kite in Pompeii savannah (now King George the 5th) was de norm. Big Bridge with all de warbeen we ketch. That was the day of children growing as children......not any more.
