Safety negative; view of ruined stone plantation house; mule standing in front yard; caption under this photo in "Islands to Windward" reads " Departed Glory: A scene typical of the West Indies. The ruins of a magnificent plantation house, a tree twisted by the Trade Winds, a somnolent donkey. Many of the residences on Nevis must have verged on the palatial, and those who lived in them probably enjoyed as gracious an existence as any devised by man."; Nevis, Caribbean; for similar views of donkey and plantation home see '1996.31.1314-.1318'; handwritten on original envelope "1405".
