It’s Museum Monday! Today’s photo shows Captain Roland Roberts (left) and Harold Lowe with a large turtle. During the late 1800s and early 1900s, turtle fishing was a lucrative occupation. Whereas a full day’s work earned a Green Turtle Cay labourer less than two shillings, one hawksbill turtle shell could bring in £8-10.
I’ve never considered myself a photographer. But when you’ve got amazing Abaco views everywhere you turn, and you shoot thousands (thousands!) of images, odds are you’ll end up with a few good photos.
After more than a decade of photographing Green Turtle Cay, and nearly three years of featuring daily images from the cay on my blog, I wanted to do something more with the pictures.
