A view of the town from the sea with people in two rowboats on the foreground and Fort Regent, a bonfire and fireworks in the background. This print was made after the 1885 painting by Ouless 'The illumination of the town of St Helier, on the evening of 2nd September 1846' commemorating a visit from Queen Victoria to St. Helier, Jersey. The visit by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert was the first ever official visit to the island of Jersey and therefore highly anticipated by the locals. The visit was documented by local artists Philip Ouless and John Le Capelain and later published into the Royal Jersey Album.
