Bay Street landmark demolished
AN ICONIC BUILDING on Bay Street is no more.
Almost 150 years after it was built, the historic building once known as E. Hunte Liquor Store, and once touted as selling the best fishcakes in Bridgetown, was reduced to rubble – torn down by heavy machinery today.
It was located next to Laurie Dash, and its demolition came as a surprise to Peter Stevens.
The vice president of Barbados Historic Garrison Consortium Inc. was one of those at the forefront of saving the building, and said they had been working with government to secure it. (HLE)
