Image Reference

Samuel Hazard, Santo Domingo, past and present, with a glance at Hayti. New York: Harper and Brothers, 1873, p. 284

This image accompanies a description of the house and its owner. The wattle-and-daub construction and thatched roof, apparently with palm fronds, was a very common house type throughout the Caribbean at this period (see also image Hazard4).
