10 From The Caribbean : 9. Sunbury House, Barbados
Sunbury House is an old plantation house on the island of Barbados. The grounds are tropical, the interior is full of period furniture, the story of the house, its owners and its workers is fascinating … but it was the curious collection of old spectacles, optical equipment and cameras that attracted me most of all. Anyone can collect postage stamps or china pots, but it takes a certain type of character to collect such things as spectacles.
