Photographer's Note

This appellation testifies to the presence of a French community established on the island from the 1800s. A port district originally called Carénage then renamed Frenchtown.rnThese French having tried the adventure of an installation on the island of Saint Thomas came from another island of the Antilles. More precisely from Saint Barthélemy.rnOnce upon a time, residents of St Barth in difficulty on their own island (drought, hurricane, etc.) came to emigrate to Saint Thomas. All attracted by waters praised as particularly full of fish… so begins the story of the French community of Charlotte Amalie on the American island of Saint Thomas.rnColorful houses and a modest chapel, Ste Anne, visible in the photo, the Catholic place of worship of these French emigrants.
