Nelson's Marriage Location

This 1890 photograph shows the remains of the plantation where the young Captain Nelson married the widow Frances Nisbet. The fact that it was dilapidated by 1890 helps illustrate the collapse in the economic fortunes of the island over the intervening century. Image courtesy of The Caribbean Photo Archive
