This is a view of Cornwall Street in Falmouth, Jamaica and is taken from Adolphe Duperly's 'Daguerian Excursions in Jamaica.' The town of Market Falmouth was named after the birthplace of the British Governor William Trelawny and many of the street names, such as Cornwall Street, are associated with him. Since there were many plantations around Market Falmouth, merchants soon set up stores like those in this illustration, to supply the estates with provisions.
