The hero images below are sourced from the Barbados album held by The National Archives UK. This album includes 372 Barbados black and white photographs.

We are also asked about the BajanThings flyingfish logo. The inspiration was the flying fish luggage sticker from the 1950s and 1960s. In tourist literature of that time Barbados was often referred to as: “the land of the flyingfish”. The BajanThings logo is based on this image from an article on the Atlantic flyingfish, Cheilopogon melanurus from the UWI Ecology, The Online Guide to the Animals of Trinidad and Tobago: Cheilopogon melanurus (Atlantic Flyingfish), by: Faood Rahaman which was published in 2015.
