So, let’s talk about railroads in Guyana… A sawmill business bought by the British to set up in 1894 a well-functioning transportation system. The railroad provided access through Guyana’s primeval forest to the upper Essequibo’s Goldfield. Being that Guyana was the only country that provided and exported a prized hardwood at the time, this functioning railroad was a prized possession
The railroad tracks ran south along the Demera River until it reached that area near the current Mackenzie bridge. Near 1900, here comes a spanking new railroad linking the two rivers. We all know that Guyana is a land surrounded by many waters though…In fact, its country is below sea level which is preoccupying with somebody. The railroads created businesses and were used to move people and pieces of equipment around from one point to the other.
It brought hope for a brighter future. All sorts of jobs were created for the future of the people. Life improved for many. Sadly, for the last 40 years, Guyana has regressed into a total disaster causing the country to fail its people over and over again.
In spite of it all, Guyana has moved into a different era. Natural Resources are back into the flow. The minds of the ancestors are connected to make futuristic decision to uphold. Railroad opportunists, take advantage of this break…Let the Oil flow…..
After Josephine Baker, here comes yet another all American actress called Grace Kelly. Josephine Baker was a sensational African American actress who danced her way through PARIS, FRANCE with a banana waistline. She was frowned upon thought, as she portrayed quite a lot of sexual mannerism. Some people are just born that way, not bad for a feminine figure, I suppose. It’s upon each person to make judgements on that unforgettable soul.
Grace Kelly on the other hand was considered to be a beautiful women. She served as a modest actress in Hollywood, then off she went to Monaco. She was married to the Prince Rainier 3 and had three kids of her own. By the way the Prince Rainier 3 ruled the Principality of Monaco for almost 56 years.
Tragedy struck both personalities, unfortunately. ☹️Princess Grace was driving along the steep cliffs of the French Riviera of the Southern France when she suffered a stroke. She was not alone, but the other party suffered terribly. Apparently, she lost control of the vehicle then it spun off the cliff’s edge and plunged down a 45 foot embarkment. She was 52 years old.
Josephine on the other hand, could not have children, apparently because she participated as a French Resistance Agent and suffered a price for it. She also suffered a stroke. It was not an easy life away from their homeland called America, I presumed. Loneliness can be a headache, for sure… She died at the age of 56. They were both friends with each other.
I suppose, there’s a sacred price to pay to live on that continent…
