Did you know that...
The final stone block in the breakwater at the Bridgetown Harbour was laid on July 23, 1960, by the Premier of Barbados, Dr. Hugh Cummins? Almost 30,000 blocks were used in constructing the harbour, some weighing as much as 20 tons. The blocks were produced by a batching machine, and railways lines were laid to transport the blocks to the construction site.
