After the Earthquake, 1907 (1912)

EDITORS COMMENTS
is a poignant print capturing the aftermath of the devastating Kingston earthquake that struck Jamaica on January 14th, 1907. With an intensity measuring at 6.5 magnitude, this seismic event left behind a trail of destruction and claimed countless lives, earning its place among history's deadliest earthquakes. In this monochrome image by artist Charles Robinson, we witness a scene frozen in time. The once bustling cityscape now lies in ruins as buildings crumble under the weight of nature's wrath. Amidst the debris and rubble, brave survivors emerge to survey what remains of their beloved Kingston. A man stands tall amidst the chaos, his face etched with determination and resilience. Beside him are children - innocent souls who have witnessed unimaginable devastation at such tender ages. Their presence serves as a reminder that even in times of great tragedy, hope can be found within humanity's indomitable spirit. This powerful artwork is part of Alice Talwin Morris' book "More About The Empire" published by Blackie and Son Limited in London, Glasgow, and Bombay in 1912. Through her words and Robinson's evocative illustration, they shed light on not only natural phenomena but also on the strength and endurance displayed by those living within Britain's vast empire during turbulent times. As we gaze upon this haunting portrait from over a century ago, let us remember those affected by this catastrophic event while acknowledging our collective ability to rebuild and rise above
