This year’s edition is a collector’s item, featuring a special 55-page section commemorating the 40th anniversary of Bahamian Independence. Along with scores of fascinating period photos, there are articles on the events and the people who moved the colony from slavery to freedom and independence. Eyewitnesses recall the fear, hope and pride they felt on July 10, 1973 when Prince Charles, representing Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, handed over the instruments of independence to Prime Minister Lynden 0. Pindling, the man who spearheaded the final push to sovereignty.
