Did you know Rivière Dorée has borne that name for a long time and is labelled so on the 1758 map?  Translated it means Golden River.  Why Golden?  Maybe because pyrite know as Fool’s Gold may have been found in the river bed.

Did you know the street in Castries which runs east-west between High Street and Victoria Street has been called after Saint Louis the Ninth, King of France?  It appears on the 18th century plan as Rue St. Louis.
