Douane - Cap-Haitien - 1928

Here is a picture of Cap-Haitian in 1928.

Cap Haitian, formerly known by other names such as, Cap Francais and Cap Christophe was given its present name after the Haitian fight for independence from the French. When the country was renamed Haiti, from the Arawak word that meant 'mountainous land', a sentiment Columbus himself had observed when he first landed, calling the land 'very high', the tribute extended to Cap-Haitian, witness to many of the decisive moves that served to win the slaves their freedom and independence.
