Tranquillity Methodist

Rich evening sunlight on the Tranquillity Methodist church on the corner of Victoria Avenue and Tragarete Road. The church was built in 1886 in what was originally the Tranquillity Estate.

Though few books state this, the Tranquillity estate is of immense historical significance in Trinidad, being the site of the first sugar estate on the island — established in 1787. Across the road from the church is the Lapeyrouse Cemetery, named after the founder of the sugar estate — Mr Picot de la Peyrouse. (The cemetery is situated on the former estate land.)

For reasons unknown to me, Tranquillity is sometimes also spelled Tranquility. Must be another Abercromby/Abercrombie issue.

Interesting picture. Did you post process it or something? It looks a bit "something" but I am not sure what?
