Map of Fuik Bay

Map of Fuik Bay
 
 

Title Leupe: De Haven van de Fuik.
This map made by Serz in 1776 shows the entrance to Fuik Bay with Fort Collenburg lying opposite. Compared with S. Geerts’ map dating twenty years earlier (VEL639), the arrangement seems to have slightly altered. The accommodation for the fort commander has been extended beyond the original wall. However, nothing had been done to improve the armament, which by late-eighteenth-century standards was below par.
North is upper left.
