From the time that Naparima was established at Paradise Pastures, until at least the 1960's, our boys would trail down the cliffs to the sea, and then walk along the sea-front or the rail-line to San Fernando wharf. There was no road there then. At the wharves, boys could rent a row-boat if they liked, or just stroll companionably along the pier by the stalls and fishing-boats - and the beautiful colonial-era train-station. The trains were in operation during these years, and was the principal way that students got to and from the outlying villages.
