These pages show some old photos from Corozal District, mostly from the early part of the Twentieth Century.
In 1913, it was called Albert Street in Corozal Town. Today it is 4th Avenue. The third photo is from 1920, the center of town, where the famous Black & White Club used to be.
Albert Street, 1913
These are areas a little away from the center of town. Parade Avenue was apparently what is now Third Avenue, or perhaps part of it is now in the Bay.
On the last photo below, the Municipal Wharf, you can see the kind of ship that brought freight, mail, and other goods.
The Foreshore must have been what is now the southwest part of Fourth Avenue, along what we now call Miami Beach.
The sugar factory was in Libertad Village, south of Corozal Town. Some years ago it was producing molasses.
Hurricane Janet virtually destroyed Corozal Town. Only a few buildings were left standing. The old Roman Catholic School and Church were destroyed. Janet was not the only hurricane to hit Corozal, however.
