"A wide space leads to the harbour. On one side (left) is the corner of a large old clothes shop: 'Moses Levy Money Lent', with garments, &c., hanging from it. Opposite is the old-fashioned 'Ship Tavern'. Off shore are ships in full sail, boats are making towards them. In the foreground is a bustle of departure: baggage is being carried, casks are rolled, sailors and their women embrace or fight; a one-legged sailor plays a fiddle, a child plays with dogs. At the door of the 'Ship' an officer takes leave of his family; from the bow-window above spectators lean out, an officer using a telescope."--British Museum online catalogue, description of an earlier state.
