"The compositional elements accruing to a profile of the New England seaport are crisply handled and perfectly balanced; a schooner's sails offers a strong left border; an anchor lying on its side points to the city; manned rowboats lend a sense of scale; a raft is attended by the figures in the sailboat; the large, picturesque windmill startles us by its presence in the 'modern' city. . . ."
