A postcard showing Indian workers ("east Indian coolies") brought to work in Jamaica (the "West Indies") to work, part of an enormous migration of Indian labor to British colonies around the world, many of whose descendants are still living in places like Fiji and Jamaica. Often postcards are the only visual evidence left of these early inhabitants. This card was postmarked on May 13, 1904 in Kingston, Jamaica and sent to a Miss Sue Loehn [sp?], Cottles, Corsham, Wilts, England, and on the front says "Thermometer 89 [degrees] Prayers in the evening. RNP"
Greetings from Jamaica, West Indies
