Ephemera from the Barbados Department of Archives

Independence and Beyond: Ephemera from the Barbados Department of Archives

Project Abstract

This project, led by HeritEdge, digitized material housed at the Barbados Department of Archives, focusing on published ephemera from the 1930s to the 2010s (bulk, 1950s-1990s). These objects offer a sweeping view of Barbadian history, covering politics, business and industry, race and gender, religion, education, social and cultural life, legislature, health, agriculture, sports, Caribbean news, and lifecycle events. This collection showcases the evolution of national consciousness and culture in Barbados during the formative decades following its Independence in 1966.
