Narrative

Point 3 mi N of Cape Garry on the W side of Low Island, in the South Shetland Islands. Roughly charted by the FrAE, 1908-10. Photographed from the air by the FIDASE, 1955-57, and more accurately delineated from these photos by the FIDS in 1959. The name "Jameson Island" was applied to Low Island by James Weddell in 1820-23. Jameson Point has been approved for this point to preserve Weddell's name on Low Island.
