    Knutsford Park Racecourse was actually in Kingston, not Spanish Town.

    Thank you for posting this. My grandfather, Laurence Robert (Bob) Mayall is in the upper left hand corner (wearing a striped tie). At the time he was 50 years old (his daughter - my mom was 4). He was the managing director of Knutsford Park Ltd., one of the first companies to promote horse racing in Jamaica.
