Take a trip down memory lane with us and experience what Bermuda looked like in the 1940s. 

Both Queen and Reid Streets were open to two-way traffic in this photograph taken in the early 1940s. American servicemen were very much a part of the local scene after the bases agreement between the United Kingdom and the United States was made in 1941.
At the corner of Burnaby and Reid Street was once The Tower.
The Palm Garden restaurant at the New Windsor Hotel on Queen Street in 1942.
Fisherman casting his net at Flatts Inlet, just below the bridge – early 1940s.

You and your bicycle could ride the rails of the Bermuda Railway.

The Hamilton fire truck affectionately named “Aunt Helen”, on Front Street opposite the railway tunnel that is now Par-la-Ville Road. Photographed in the very late 1940’s, the men aboard Aunt Helen are believed to be Allan Davidson (standing on the near side), driver Donald Rance, and seated in the passenger seat, fire chief Billy Petty. Behind the Aunt Helen is the fire trust “Uncle John”.
