St. John's Harbour, ca 1780
A painting of St. John's Harbour, looking southwest, created by an unknown artist sometime between 1778 and 1790. In the foreground is what appears to be a fishing vessel tied up to a wharf and fish flake for drying cod. In the background is the admiral's flagship. Although not clearly visible in this image, a close inspection of the painting shows the admiral's broad pennant hoisted from the stern.
