Sketch From the Inn at Hampton
Pencil, pen, ink, and watercolor on paper drawing of "Sketch From the Inn at Hampton", ca. 1798, from the Latrobe Sketchbooks, by Benjamin Henry Latrobe. This Virginia scene features two two-masted schooners at dock in the foreground. A man sits in one of the boats. In the distance, out on the water, are other sailing ships, houses, and one structure with a windmill. The body of water could be the Hampton River or Chesapeake Bay.
