Jamaican Royal Enfield dealer starts a business dynasty
Cecil B. Facey was a Royal Enfield dealer in the 1920's. Here is an ad that appeared in "The Gleaner" on April 3, 1926, right there below the commercial for the world-famous Scott Emulsion (you can still buy that stuff on Amazon.com!) It appears Mr. Facey's business, started in 1919, flourished and diversified. His descendants were nominated for the Jamaica Observer Business leaders of the year in 2008.
