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.
