Lithograph from Adolphe Duperly's 'Daguerian Excursions in Jamaica.' Buildings constructed in Jamaica after 1750 were built in a style quite distinct from European architecture. This new 'Creole' style adapted European design to make the buildings more suitable for the warm climate. Classical columns or staircases were used externally to retain the European feel but the ground floor was built as an open area to allow air to circulate and to provide a cool sheltered area. The building featured in this lithograph is the Lindo Store. Cecil Vernon Lindo and his brother Keith owned a chain of general stores in Jamaica. All manner of provisions - from tinned goods and fruit, to equipment and medicines, could be purchased from their stores.
