Tienda Habibe den Wilhelminastraat.

Every other Saturday my father and I went to Oranjestad for the Dutch foods not available in Lago Commissary. A favorite excursion for us both.

Ah, the Spritzer and Fuhrmann with their lovely carillon on Nassaustraat. We laughed at the visiting tourists in the 1950s as the men walked in wearing shorts (you dressed up to shop on Nassaustraat, then...NO shorts!) They wore black socks inside their sandals...showing "dead fish belly white" bare legs! Hilarious, to the American and Dutch kids of Lago Colony who were born and raised in the Esso corporate town for "expat" employees of Esso Overseas Personnel, on two year assignment.

Lago Hospital, Lago Colony (1958 changed to Seroe Colorado)

Lago Hospital, Lago Colony changed to Seroe Colorado, but not to me!) The nurses home in the front left and the addition in the back, right. Not sure when the "modern" section was built.
