  • The Island Sun photographic archive is being digitized to save it from the ravages of time, climate, discoloration, chemical interaction between the various photographs resulting in gradual but unforgiving deterioration and loss.
  • The Island Sun is starting a restoration and rescue project and will share some of the results in this section with the local community and our global readers on the internet. The Island Sun is the first newspaper in the entire Virgin Islands (BVI and USVI) to have its own website and we look forward to the continued support of our readers and advertisers to continue in our 55 year old commitment to inform the public and promote the BVI.
