This etching dates from around the time of the Napoleonic
wars and purports to show the view looking east from near Archcliffe Fort.
It seems likely that it was drawn by someone who was either working from
memory (not very clear!) or who had not actually seen this view. The
castle is not right, the cliffs slope too gently to the sea, and there are
hills where the centre of the town should be!
