Text accompanying a plate depicting the island of St Vincent with the Soufrierre Mountain dominating the landscape. About 100 miles due west of Barbados, St Vincent is a volcanic and mountainous island, covered with lush valleys and high ridges. The Souffriere Mountain is the highest peak on the island rising over 4000 feet above sea level. In 1812 the Soufrierre erupted devastating the surrounding sugar plantations. Over 50 people were killed in the eruption and ensuing earthquakes. This view is drawn from the Wallibou Estate and overlooks a sugar plantation works.
