My Beautiful Map of Port Royal and Kingston Jamaica

My beautiful map of Port Royal and Kingston Jamaica, for my soon to be new writing room, “Peggy’s Cove.” This map is dated 1772. Of course it isn’t the original but it’s beautiful.

Check out a little history on the tragic Earthquake that destroyed a great deal of Port Royal in 1692.

I chose this web site not only for the story content but because of the wonderful illustrations.

It was calm in Jamaica the morning of June 7, 1692. According to Edmund Heath’s eyewitness account, “there was no wind stirring” and nothing that made anyone suspicious of the calamity about to befall the island.
