Lithograph from Adolphe Duperly's 'Daguerian Excursions in Jamaica.' By the end of the 18th century there were approximately 800 sugar plantations in Jamaica and this view is of the Golden Grove estate in St Thomas. The works buildings can be seen, with the water wheel and the great chimney of the boiling house easily identifiable. On the right of the picture is the 'great house.' Large arches surround an open ground floor which created a cool shaded courtyard. The first floor was well ventilated with louvered windows and a grand staircase rose to an ornate portico.
