who was wrightson btw?

Walsh Wrightson (an Englishman), Director of Public Works (1895-1907). Key figure in the Water Riots of 1903.

I learned about this from Michael Anthony's book "The Making of Port of Spain", wonder why it is not a routine part of the curriculum, at least when I was in primary and secondary school...

I can assure you more than half of Trinbago doh know who is Wrightson that "Wrightson Road" was named after..

mmmm, no ah tink is jus me

but since we on de topic,ah want ah one line history of Frederick, Duke & Chacon..oh and Park...and trow in Henry too

Frederick St. - named in honor of Frederick, Prince of Wales, the father of King George III, who was the current King of England when the British captured T&T from the Spanish. Under Spanish rule it was known as Calle San Carlos.

Duke St. - named in honor of British royalty. They already had King, Queen, and Prince streets, so they added the next title (in descending order), which was Duke. Under Spanish rule it was known as Calle Princesa de Asturias.

Henry St. - Under Spanish rule it was known as Calle de Herrera. Herrera was the name of the police chief who happened to live on that street. Henry is supposedly a corruption of the name Herrera.

Park St. - When this street was first cut, it was on the edge of what looked like a park.

Take a read of Michael Anthony's making of POS, all of those qus re-street naming and the POS expansion would be unravelled, even the history of Catholic schools (CIC, Fatima) viz a viz gov't schools (QRC, Bishops) and how that was really a battle of religion is revealed.  We real lapsin we, stuff like this ought to be mandatory from primary all the way through......know from whence you came, then there is no limit to where you can go....
