This old sign is all that’s left of the once famous Royal Vic. The Royal Victoria Hotel was once the 'grand damme' of The Bahamas. It was built during the American Civil War, then finally closed in 1971. Shortly after, the proud old hulk of the building was consumed by a fire. After it was destroyed by fire, it was demolished and razed to the ground. All that was left behind were its gardens and a sprawling, empty shell of pillars and stone. The resulting landscape is a stunning cross between a botanical garden and something like a Roman ruin. This old hotel sign is still on the grounds of the Royal Victoria Gardens.
