Title

Manchester - Ward Avenue

Description

"Oh what a waste! The protracted drought which has been gripping the island makes any rain, natural or seeded, a blessed event and a precious default on Mandeville's Ward Avenue makes rain a continually wasted and obviously unwanted blessing. Heavy rains on Tuesday flooded Ward Avenue, snarled traffic as the picture shows, and the water went to waste. But the rain which started at about noon on the pinnacle of the Spur Tree Hill not only watered Mandeville but spread to other areas of Manchester, St. Elizabeth and nearby parishes and gladdened the hearts of farmers particularly."
