Description

Printed in 1946 with updates to 1949 is this large sea chart of Port Royal & Kingston Harbour on Jamaica’s south coast. Printed at a scale of 1/12,600 means that 1 sea mile is approx. 6 inches on this chart, which gives really good detail as can be seen in the photo. Although unused for navigation it does have some red marking at the bottom left marking an area of danger to the south of Port Royal. Despite this, the chart would look good in a frame on your office wall. Depths are in fathoms where 1 fathom = 6 feet. 

All my charts are genuine originals
