While Jamaica was still under British rule, this depiction of the Caribbean island shows it in a period of transition and growth spurred by international demand for sugarcane, the island's primary export. The Capital had been moved from Spanish Town to Kingston in 1872, and this map was published with incredible detail from roadways to proposed railroad lines. This map was produced by noted British cartographer Colin Liddell whose work was known for its extensive attention to detail and accuracy.
The island's importance as a trading outpost and gateway to the America's had long been established since Columbus' arrival in 1494. England invaded Jamaica in 1655 to take control from Spanish colonizers. Britain would retain control of Jamaica until it was granted independence from the crown in 1962. The late nineteenth century saw Jamaica working to transition into modernity, and its towns and ports were bustling as trade between the island nations of the Caribbean and Europe expanded.
An earthquake struck the island in 1907 that caused extensive damage and destruction following fires that erupted after the initial shock. Rebuilding took years, and the event was a turning point for the island as it transitioned into the twentieth century. Jamaica's distinct culture is known internationally, and it was an important trading hub and agricultural producer for the America's throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This stunning, detailed depiction of the island immediately takes the viewer back in time and is a rare piece of cartographical history.
