Jamaican Georgian architecture

Jamaican Georgian architecture is an architectural style that was popular in Jamaica between c. 1750 and c. 1850.[1] It married the elegance of Georgian styling with functional features designed to weather Jamaica's tropical climate.[2] It was used at all levels in society, from the most important public buildings to humble domestic dwellings.

There is a related style of furniture.[3]

Many of Jamaica's railway stations were constructed in this style.[4]
