1946 Moulder Pictorial Map of Barbados


Caribbean paradise!


The Pleasant Isle of Barbados.
  1946 (dated)     21.25 x 17.25 in (53.975 x 43.815 cm)     1 : 63360


This is a 1946 Bruce Moulder pictorial map of Barbados. Pictorial icons illustrate the island's sugar factories, windmills, and lighthouses. Other illustrations mark hotels, important buildings (such as the Government House in Bridgetown), and the Seawell Airport. A handful of short descriptions provide historical information. Beaches where swimming is possible are noted with the word 'seabathing'. Red dotted and dashed lines separate the island's parishes, each of which is labeled. The Caribbean's diverse sea life encircles the map, with a hawksbill turtle, a flying fish, and a red snapper illustrated.

Richard Bruce Moulder (1907 - May 5, 1966) was a British architectural designer born in British Guiana. Very little is definitively known about Moulder, but our research indicates that he spent most of his life on Barbados. He married Mary Gwendoline Pitcher in 1933, with whom he had two children, at least one of them a daughter. He died in Barbados in 1966. More by this mapmaker...
