View of Grenada's principal town. Formerly a French settlement named Port Louis, the town's name was changed to Saint George's after the island was ceded to Great Britain in 1763. The carenage is the town's inner harbour. 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'.
Not in Abbey.
