Hurricane David to Dominica in 1979. My dad was in Dominica at the time of this hurricane. I was suppose to be there too but my mum had a bad feeling and didn't want be to go with my dad that summer so I stayed at home in London. For 10 days we did not know whether my dad was alive, until he arrived home.

This 20 foot tall fiberglass Great Dane stands in front of the Great Dane Trailers facility. The Great Dane has been the company's symbol since 1931. This statue was built in 1960 and was originally installed in Orlando, FL. It was knocked over in 1979 during Hurricane David and again in 1980 by a tornado. The statue was knocked over again in the late 1990s by a hit-and-run driver. When the Orlando facility closed in 2001, the statue was moved here.
