Streadwick's Marine Gardens
I recently found this comment on Streadwick from an article about Jamaica in a U.S. magazine in 1917 -
Outing: Sport, Adventure, Travel, Fiction
- Volume 69 - Page 372
Caspar Whitney, Albert Britt - 1917
All the servants and day laborers are colored. Few have been able to advance, but there are exceptions. S. J. Streadwick is one of them. By the good graces of a fairy godmother he was endowed with ambition and ability. From a foreman . . . . . . he became a contractor and is now wealthy. It was in one of his houses that my friend lived during the six months of his visit to Jamaica.
Some early mentions!
Was Streadwick thinking of giving up the project?
