THE UWI MONA LIBRARY DIGITAL COLLECTIONS

About this collection

This collection of Black and white photographs was extracted from the Archibald Cooper Collection. They were taken in 1938-1939 when Cooper and his wife undertook anthropological research among the Maroons of Accompong. The images were digitized from the negatives which were deposited along with his field notes. They were intended to be included in his doctoral thesis. However his studies were interrupted by the war (1939-1945) and were never completed. The photographs illustrate aspects of life in Accompong at the time.
