Tenement yards once punctuated the city. They were, in a sense, the urban equivalent of the logies on the sugar estates. As with the estates, each tenement yard had its own ecosystem: a constant flux of characters, communities and subcultures. These readings, drawn from Wilson Harris, Stanley Greaves and Godfrey Chin, seek to convey snippets of a lost world. 

This event is part of the Moray House Trust's Samaan Tree Series -- short, informal mid-week sessions on a variety of topics. All are welcome.
