Harbour Street In Montego Bay, What is it like now?

by Wayne Forbes
(BC Canada)



My company Masterton Ltd. opened a company building in Montego Bay in the 1950's, and I worked there a couple fine times when the manager was going on vacation.


I worked in the Kingston office for 11 years, but I left them in 1979, so I wanted to know what has happened in the Montego Bay building which I can't remember the street number, but I attach a picture of the opening celebration in Montego Bay and any details of what it's like now would be very interesting.

Subsequent (and Additional Information) by Wayne Forbes

I worked with Masterton Ltd. for several years in the Kingston offices, but also spent some time in the Montego Bay office for about three times when the manager was going on holiday times, and that was in the early 1970's.

The building was built in the 1960's and I attach a picture of it being built.

I really wanted to see pictures of that place now which is at 17 Harbour Street Montego Bay and I have not seen that any time, it would be great to see that.

Editor's Note

Hi Wayne, I think that building (at 17 Harbour Street) was replaced by the now 'Westron Plaza'.

It now houses several smaller shops, including clothing stores, internet cafe's, computer stores and a supermarket etc.

I will get a current picture to share with you soon.
