This is a watercolour of the Barbados headland drawn during a voyage to the West Indies in 1762 by the Master of the island of St Ann's. Barbados is the most eastern or leeward of the islands and the terrain is relatively flat, the tallest peak being only 1,100 feet above sea level. The island is 14 miles wide and 21 miles long. Barbados was settled in 1627 and by the mid 18th century was a thriving sugar trading island.
