Cooperage
1778
In the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries British warships, transports and supply ships came and went in Gros Islet Bay and were refitted and resupplied at Pigeon Island. Barrels were the containers of the day. They were used to transport fresh water from St. Lucia, and also for anything that needed to be packed and stowed away. This meant that a cooper had to be on hand to make barrels.
