Accompanying text for a print of Port Maria taken from James Hakewill's 'A Picturesque Tour in the Island of Jamaica.' Port Maria was the principal town in the parish of St Mary's and had been a busy banana loading port when under Spanish control. Located on the north side of the island, it had a different climate to the rest of Jamaica being wetter and colder, and its houses, unusually, were built with chimneys.
