FIRST ANNUAL HORSE RACING AT CEDROS, Trinidad social and postal history
1884 use of the QV 2d blue Post Card (for India and Countries in the Far East via UK) to Hampstead, London pmk'd "T.21" duplex dated C/SP 25 84 (Type 0.9, used Cedros). Writer says he has written "giving an account of the Races" and that he saw Luther "at the Races" with mention of Palmcole Estate.
Cedros, one of the most isolated areas in Trinidad, had little in the social calendar. In 1884, some of the colonial officials and larger planters of the area joined to hold a series of races at Columbus Bay, the sands being firm enough for their purpose. The event, which came off on September 18, was held under the patronage of the Governor, Sir F.B. Barlee. He came down for the occasion along with many guests aboard the island steamer. It was then an annual event, being held on New Year's Day, thereafter. The last races were held in 1950.
