The "Back in the Days" exhibit at the Corozal House of Culture was graciously donated by Grant D. Jones.
An explanation of this exhibit is found on display with the exhibit. Dr. Jones says, "During 1967-1968 my wife, Mary Armistead-Jones and I spent nearly nine months in Corozal Town. During that period I carried out field research throughout the district as preparation for writing my doctoral thesis in cultural anthropology at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. The subject of my study was the impact of the sudden and rapid growth of small-farmer sugar cane production on the rural farming villages of the Corozal District. Nearly all the photographs in this exhibit were taken during this period."
This explanation is found on the last two images of the gallery below.
This exhibit is a valuable permanent addition to the House of Culture, thanks
to Dr. Jones.
Images below are of the opening of the exhibit in January, 2013.
If you are unable to visit the exhibit in person, there are more pictures in our yearbook gallery, and the pop-ups are larger, for your enjoyment.
