of complete lithograph
In August of 1853, Commodore Perry departed Lew Chew for China. The first stop was in Macao where he took a house for an extended stay. Perry noted that due to the shallow harbor, large merchant ships and Ships of War could not anchor in the Macao harbor. T his had reduced Macao to a much less lucrative coastal trading port for the smaller ships.
In this lithograph you see the town and harbor of Macao with the smaller ships at anchor. You also see the Portuguese forts on the hills overlooking the harbor. Perry noted that the Portuguese still maintained a "...show of military possession...." over Macao.
