A conversation with 94 year old Mrs. Gloria Stewart, a Jamaican born in Spaulding, Manchester in 1915, to descendants of Irish emigrants. When she was 2 years old to be closer to relatives, her family moved to German Town near Ulster Spring Trelawny, then largely populated by descendants of German and Irish emigrants. Aunt Gloria as she is lovingly called, is blessed with a sharp memory, recalling the date of birth of many of her 11 brothers and sisters. After living most of her life in German Town/Ulster Spring as a wife, mother and business owner she migrated to the United States where she now resides. Backyardlabrish has invited Aunt Gloria to join the labrish and share her memories of back-in-the-days growing up in Jamaica “Land We Love”. Join us as we learn how life was growing up in Trelawny in the twenties from someone who lived it. Visit the backyard and join the labrish
