Leaders and Pioneer Photographers of the Island
Established in the year 1840.
Extensive and finest Studio in Kingston, 85 King Street.
T HE Island of JAMAICA was discovered by CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS in 1494 during his second voyage to the ,,NEW WORLD", and
after remaining in SPANISH OCCUPATION for 161 years, was surrendered to an ENGLISH expedition in 1655. From its central
position as regards the other WEST INDIAN ISLANDS being in direct track between EUROPE, the UNITED STATES, and the ISTHMUS
of PANAMA, cannot but furnish advantages and conveniences for trade and commerce between these points which are not to be
found elsewhere and when the PANAMA CANAL is an accomplished fact, JAMAICA will undoubtedly be a necessary branch of that
=0= enormous undertaking and must largely benefit by the increased traffic, that will pass in this direction. The length of the Island is 144 miles
its greatest width is 49 miles. Thelsland is divided into three countries: SURREY, CORNWALL andMIDDLESEX, and sub-divided into 14Pari-
. F shes.Thesurfaceof the Island is extremely mountainous and attains considerable altitudes particularly in the eastern part, where the central range
is known as the BLUE MOUNTAINS (Western Peak) 7,360 ft. A great diversity of climate is therefore obtainable from a tropical temperature
of 300 (Eigthy degrees) at the sea coast and the THERMOMETER falls to 45 and 50 on the tops of the mountains (highest) and with a dryness
of atmosphere that renders the climate of the mountains of JAMAICA particularly delightful and suitable to the most delicate constitutions.
There are many MINERAL SPRINGS in JAMAICA, most of them possessing valuable properties for the cure of various diseases and infir-
mities of the body. TWO of these are particularly famed, the hot sulphur springs of BATH and the warm salt spring at MILK RIVER. o The BOTANIC
GARDEN- CASTLETON, beautifully situated in the parish of St. Mary, on the Junction road between KINGSTON and ANNOTTA BAY
(Elevation 580 ft.) The HOPE GARDEN of 220 acres is situated near the foot of the hills in the LIGUANEA PLAINS and is 5 miles from
KINGSTON. o The HILL GARDEN and CINCHONA PLANTATION is situated in the parish of St. ANDREW on the slopes of the BLUE
MOUNTAINS about 21 miles from KINGSTON by way of GORDON TOWN.
The total estimated population in 1904 was 797.528 of which 14,692 were white, the rest were coloured, Black, Coolies, Chinese and
others not stated.
The scenery of the Island is of surpassing beauty, the view from Stony Hill over the plain of Liguanea being both grand and
panoramic in effect. The celebrated ROARING RIVER FALLS of which are famed for their grand beauty, the picturesque view of the rolling
pastures of St. Ann and far famed FERN VALLEY (GULLEY). The town of PORT ANTONIO is very picturesque and can boast of the
possession of the largest hotel in the Island. The scenery of the RIO GRANDE VALLEY and JOHN CROW Mountains is amongst the finest.
The military cantonment at NEWCASTLE on one of the spurs of the BLUE MOUNTAIN RANGE is the station of the white troops.
It is situated 3974 feet above the sea amid the most charming scenery and in very healthy climate.
The town of LUCEA is possibly the healthiest as well as the most picturesque place in JAMAICA. The SANTA CRUZ Moun-
tains are well known for their charming climate, which is at the same time both cool and dry the residents are justly proud of the bracing air
of these mountains and the beautiful scenery. MANDEVILLE is the chief town of MANCHESTER and is one of the prettiest towns in the
Island. Its situation on the top of a mountain 2.200 feet above sea level is extremely picturesque. The ,,BOG WALK" is one of the finest bits
of scenery in the road to LINSTEAD. A torrent gushing in misty depths and fighting its downward course among scattered rocks the narrowness
of the ravine orden through which it rushes and the steepness and loftiness of the precipice on either side with the richness and variety of
tropical vegetation growing in all the exhuberance of its foliage on every spot where a plant can rest - - - these features unite in imparting
to the scenery all the imposing effect of. blending beauty and grandeur.
