Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y30771A/16

Scope and Contents

323 x 215 mm. A good view showing the seaward side of St George's taken from the promontory on which Fort St George stands : 'St George's (population, 1819, 4919), the chief town of the colony, is situated on a promontory of the land at the south-western extremity of the island. Viewed from the sea, its appearance is singularly picturesque and interesting, as the steep sides of the promontory, which projects into the sea in a southerly direction, are covered with brick houses, whose red-tiled roofs contrast pleasantly with the rich green tropical vegetation surrounding them. The ridge of the hill is crowned with three churches...' (Drayton 1896, p. 62).
