“Something Special Swan Club”

He mad - An usual house built as a sea vessel.

A tugboat painted in red, blue and white

On a street off Barataria, Trinidad, West Indies, a boathouse is berthed to land. Something Special Swan Club
is the building in question, and the letters are spelt out in wrought iron on the front gate. At the time this house was built, is caused quite a stir in the community. The spot was also popular among tourists. Rumor had it that the owner wanted to live close to the sea but could not. Something Special Swan Club was construct to give him the sense that he was with the upper deck and lower compartments, radar and tug .

One of its kind,
Something Special Swan Club, a building that brought the tourist in, but its upkeep has taken a toll.

It's amazing - and also disturbing - how you can go about your live seeing but not looking or even observing. I've seen this building before and made note of it's unique design - and then promptly forgot about it. It's only now that I'm living in London, where every house is the same, that I'm learning an appreciation for things like this. Now I wonder, what was I ever in such a hurry for, that I never paid closer attention to these things?
