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. Much of the land in this area was owned by C. N. Bayley and on the left of the picture can be seen the new Court House which was built on land sold by him. On the right is the hilly Frontier Estate, owned by A. Stirling.
