Today, The Jamaica Chamber of Commerce building is still in existence with some minor changes. - Norman Grindley/Chief Photographer
1962: With the occasion of the national Independence celebrations less than a month away, paintbrushes are being used all over the isle to give a sparkling look for a historic occasion. In Kingston, The Jamaica Chamber of Commerce is among the organisations beautifying their premises for the event.
We continue our feature, which looks at structures across the island in the early years, comparing them with what they look like today. Chief Photographer Norman Grindley has searched the archives of The Gleaner and visited these places.
