This detailed engraving, showing a bird’s-eye-view of the town and harbour of Harwich in Essex, is coloured with washes of watercolour. The town of Harwich and the meeting of the River Stour and the River Orwell are seen as they appeared in the early 18th century. In the distance is a church in the village of Shotley, on a peninsula between the two rivers. The main buildings and features are identified in a lettered key below the image and include the ‘Lighthouse’, ‘St. Nicholas' Church’ in Harwich, ‘Shotley Church’ and 'Shotley gate house'.
