The Name

In the early 1950's, the eminent underwater explorer, Jacques Cousteau visited Bermuda in his famous ship "Calypso".

The ship was moored off the Hornburg residence "Girvan" on Harbour Road during one of his expeditions. The ship was named "Calypso" after a sea nymph in Greek Mythology who held the hero Odysseus in her thrall. Mr. Cousteau and his ship held the Hornburgs in their thrall so much that they decided to name their new store based in their gate house at Girvan, "Calypso".

To continue their success, they moved the store to Front Street in 1952, finally settling in their current location in the Miles Building, a sunny yellow building that stands tall overlooking the harbour.
