Inside the Harbour at Malta, 17 April 1852
Inscribed top left, 'Apr 17th 52 / Malta' and 'Frank' below the passenger-carrying dghaisa in the left centre. This is presumably the name of the Maltese boatman rowing it, perhaps one well known to Mends and other officers. The viewpoint appears to be well inside the Grand Harbour, and was carefully chosen for a clear view seaward, though the scale is a little odd. The centre of Valletta is on the Floriana promontory to the left, the arcade probably being that of the Lower Barracca Gardens. The bastion to the right is Fort St Michael, on the inward side of Dockyard Creek.
