Image Reference

Painting by Lionel Grimston Fewkes (1881), privately owned; from a post card produced by the Barbados Museum.

Shows owner's or manager's house of Andrews plantation in center rear; to right, a windmill base; also figures of women with "dung baskets" on their heads. In foreground, carter with team of oxen. Though depicting a scene in the post-emancipation period, this image evokes the slave period.
