BTW, Here’s Falmouth in B/W

. … See, I was born in St. James, Grew up in St. Ann, but somehow much recently, Falmouth stole my heart! I get excited each time I visit this historic town which has many fine examples of Georgian Architecture. Over the years the most drastic change has been the Pier that has turned the town into a major tourist attraction. Otherwise, many of the buildings through numerous efforts have been maintained but unfortunately for a few … their stories have tragic endings.

Needless to say, I have TONS of photos but on my last trip … I decided to try something new ….  Austin and I had a  blast shooting these streetscapes and more in variations of sepia.

St. Peter’s Anglican Church ~ The oldest public building in Falmouth and the first church in Trelawny. Best of all, the clock still functions

This poor building has changed so much over the years .. now it’s a cafe and honestly I quite prefer it in sepia here

Falmouth Court House ~ Originally built in 1817, but was destroyed by fire in 1926 and later rebuilt using the shell that remained. Today it has been resurfaced in the traditional Ancient Roman lime wash technique adapted by the British and houses the Courthouse, Town hall and Trelawny Parish Council offices.
