I have spent the last 14 months, including 2 months in Portland, researching the history of Portland Parish. I think I might be on the way to a book. This would be my second book as an author and publisher and my 5th project going back to the publication of A FAIRFIELD HISTORY in 2005. That project, a history of my neighbourhood in Canada, was a critical succcess and almost a financial success. Since then I have worked with other authors on their projects, including the folks from Sturge Town, St. Ann. Now I think I am well on the way to launching the next project. By November I hope to be in Kingston scheduling the printing of PORTLAND: THE OTHER JAMAICA. At about 120 pages and 50 historic photographs I hope this will be the peoples history of Portland: a book that people from Portland will want to buy, read and share with their families and friends.
It would be great if I could get input from those Portlanders who are currently living away. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. – Ken Roueche
