A view of Dry Harbour in Jamaica. The harbour is on the north coast of the island and is where Columbus made his first landing in Jamaica in 1494. The explorer originally named the harbour Horseshoe Bay because of its shape, but it then became known as Dry Harbour. It was later renamed Discovery Bay in honour of Columbus. This print was dedicated to Rose Fuller, a male politician and owner of the Brightling Estate.
