Amelia Street looking west, toward the waterfront, in the distance.
Restored Bahama Village architecture:
Bahama Village has been a tight knit community of African Americans who were shunted off to this side of Key West when the center of trade was in the harbor around Mallory Square. Nowadays this land is valuable but the community is well entrenched even though the voracious demand for land and housing puts pressure o the older families that want to live in "the Village."
The figurehead hints at nautical roots often claimed not often verified these days.
Classic unrestored architecture, strong simple fence, metal gate and house with possibly a window air conditioner.
