In an effort to attract agricultural labour after the demise of slavery, officials in the Danish West Indies (now the US Virgin Islands) sent out a call for immigrants, promising good wages. In response, in the 1870s, a large group of people left St. Bartholomew (St. Barts) and traveled north to St. Thomas where they settled along the coast, just outside of Charlotte Amalie, the capital. Many were fishermen and the area became, and has remained, a fishing village known as Frenchtown. I took this pix of the fishing boats a couple months ago.
Today, I'm once again participating in Snapshot Saturday which is sponsored by Alyce of At Home With Books!
