Portsmouth Point

Thomas Rowlandson British

Not on view

A harbor scene with an old clothes shop at left with a sign that reads, "Moses Levy Money Lent." At right is the "Ship Tavern." Ships sail off the coast and dock at the harbor. People are bustling to depart in the foreground: baggage is carried, casks are rolled, sailors and and women embrace or fight.
