View from Fairmont Hamilton Princess, Bermuda--Sept., 1952

Dad flew from LaGuardia to Kindley Field on Colonial Airlines aircraft N-4268 on Sept. 28, 1952. Passenger manifest is available on line, amazingly.

Dad's 8th great-grandfather Stephen Hopkins was sailing to Virginia in 1609 on the Sea Venture but was shipwrecked on Bermuda. Claiming the laws of England did not apply he refused to obey the orders of the captain, and was nearly hanged for mutiny. He later returned to the New World on the Mayflower.

"The Fairmont Hamilton Princess ("The Princess" to most locals) opened its doors on January 1, 1885. Bermuda had gained international recognition two years earlier in 1883 when Princess Louise, the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria, visited for a winter retreat and called it a place of eternal spring. When the hotel opened, it was named The Princess in honor of the royal visit some years earlier.

Harley Trott, a leading businessman at the time and head of Trott & Cox, the steamship agents and purveyors of meat for the British military, was determined to build a hotel that would attract affluent Americans, who would summer in the Berkshires and winter in Bermuda.

From the moment it opened, The Princess was considered the gem of the island. With long shady verandas and a blue slate roof, the four-story building comprised 70 rooms, each equipped with gas lights, hot and cold running water and a five-inch mirror to allow guests to primp before stepping out for the night. Staff dressed in white jackets and waving pink handkerchiefs greeted luxury liners.

As word got out, celebrities started to appear. Mark Twain, a regular at the hotel, loved to smoke cigars on the veranda and wartime guest Ian Fleming is said to have used its fish tank-lined Gazebo Bar as a motif in his novel, Dr. No." Wikipedia
