Print from James Hakewill's 'A Picturesque Tour in the Island of Jamaica.' Cardiff Hall was one of the most desirable residences on the island. It was owned by John Balgrove who inherited the estate from his father in the early 19th century. Balgrove was born in Jamaica but was educated in England at Eton and the University of Oxford. To the right of the picture can be seen a large flat base on which the pimentos - one of the crops grown on the estate - were laid out to dry.
