Jamaica and Tourism

This 1930s photograph of tourists enjoying themselves on Doctor's Cave Beach, Montego Bay, Jamaica was used by Pan Am to encourage people to visit the island. Cruise ships and planes increasingly called into the exotic location but rich tourists were cosseted away from the poorest parts of the island and were kept in their luxury hotels and roped off beaches.
