THEN: There's lyrical beauty in the picture on a spreading ponciana tree, silhouetted in all its many leafed glory against the silver service tank, on the grounds of the Trench Town pumping station. The manicured lawn and immensity of the tank are all captured by the camera of Aston Rhoden.
NOW: Today, the Trench Town pumping station is in a deplorable state. The tank no longer works and a small plum tree replaces the beautiful poinciana.
We continue our feature which looks at structures across the island in earlier years, comparing them with what they look like today. Chief Photographer Norman Grindley searched the archives of The Gleaner and visited these places.
