Description
Woodcut engraving of Kingston from Point Henry looking across Navy Bay to the Stone Frigate and beyond that to Kingston harbour. The presence of two steamboats in Navy Bay at this date suggests that the original photograph, by Dr. J. P. Litchfield of Kingston, was taken in the spring, as some of the Royal Mail steamboats were known to winter in Navy Bay.
