The illustrations show scenes on the several islands, with subjects including buildings, shops, views, locals, docks, and the like. The Preface by Charles Taylor - author of several other works on these West Indian islands - is dated London, 1905, with his text before and following the images; the book closes with advertisements for mainly Virgin Islands businesses.
