Photos of Bermuda

Photos from a business trip to Bermuda in October, 2007

On the last day that I was in Bermuda, I went to the Bermuda Maritime Museum. I took a ferry from Hamilton which cut across the Great Sound instead of having to take a bus the long way around. (I assume there was a bus — I didn't check.)

Here are some photos near the Bermuda Maritime Museum:



bermuda The Dockyard Gate, 1842.

This was constructed during the reign of Queen Victoria.
This is the inner face of the gate, and above the pedestrian gate (the doorway on the right) is a stone with the construction date in Roman numerals.

bermuda The Casemate Barracks, 1829-1843.

This was built by convict labor and local artisans, supervised by the Royal Engineers.
It was built in a "bombproof" style. See the blank window openings in the top storey? This part of the building is filled with over ten feet of sand and rubble supported by thick arched brick vaulting carefully laid in a method known as Royal Engineers Brickwork. This was designed to protect the building from mortar fire, and was called a "Casemate."

Then I got back on the ferry and headed back to Hamilton:
