You can’t imagine how happy I was when I saw those pics from our carnival 1976. I was working with Pott Rum as the assistance chemist. Was in charge of making the fruit punch that was distributed during the parade. That year we made the distilling float. I am one of the men standing on the pickup. Thank you so much. All those pic was lost during Hurricane Louis. So thank you again for the memory.
