LE CAPELAIN, John.
Portelet Bay, Jersey.
One of a series of 26 views published in 1847 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s visit to Jersey, lithographed by Day & Son, lithographers to the Queen. Described by Le Capelain as “A quiet rock-encircled nook, where few sounds are ever heard, save of the splashing wave or sea-brid’s cry, upon whose yellow sands foot-prints are seldom seen. In the centre of the bay is a rocky islet and martello tower, beyond which a mass of bold rocks terminate the view”.
