Photographer's Note

Build around 1895, this property was originally the Barbados Mutual Life Assurance Society Building, and is one of the most striking buildings you will see in the capital city Bridgetown.

Located at the lower end of Broad Street, this ornate Building features late Victorian architecture, elegant silver domes on the rooftop towers and an overhanging veranda/balcony surrounding most of the 2nd story, with gorgeous iron work imported from England and Scotland.

The Mutual Building was designed by Messrs. Cossin and Peacock, an architect firm from England, and was constructed by Mr C.J Greenidge who had earlier built the St Michael's Almshouse (now the Geriatric Hospital).

This imposing structure has since been home to a branch of the Mutual Bank of the Caribbean, until 2003 when it then housed a branch of the Butterfield Bank, and later a First Citizens Bank branch in 2012.

To this day most of the Mutual Building's original structure has been well-maintained and preserved.
