Lithograph on india paper, sheet 135 x 220mm (5¼ x 8½"). Toning to edges.
Fort Charlotte on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent, which stood on Berkshire Hill, Edinboro, 6000 feet above sea level. The fort was constructed between 1763 (when the British recovered the island) and 1806. The fort is now a historical site. Plate from 'Four Years' residence in the West Indies' by Frederick William N. Bayley (1808-52), who accompanied his father (a soldier) to Barbados in the 1820s. Bayley writes in his book that 'perhaps I could not have been on a more delightful spot than the citadel at Forth Charlotte'.
