Kendall Place, Tobago

Painted in the early 19th Century by J Platt, this picture hints at the importance of naval power in the bay and shows an old sugar mill already in decline. The island in the background is Trinidad illustrating its relative proximity despite it being administered entirely separately in the early 19th Century. Image courtesy of Christies
