Thomas Craskell, the Island Engineer, was responsible for preparing the building's plans. The building was completed in 1762 while Sir William Henry Lyttleton was Governor. The mansion was destroyed during a fire in 1925 and now houses the Jamaican People's Museum of Crafts and Technology. In the image, a man sits on the wall of Emancipation Square close to a nearby traffic signal. Slide labeled Spanish Town.
