Baltimore Town in 1752

Description

View of Baltimore, showing the village as seen from what would later be called Federal Hill. Small, simple buildings in blue, yellow, and red make up the bottom third of the composition. Some larger multi-story buildings can be seen to the right. A hint of blue in the sky has been added by the artist, but there are no other landscape details.
