Original pen drawing. 


Nicolas Marie Ozanne, a naval draughtsman, was born in Brest in January 1728 and died in Paris in January 1811. After 1775 he was commissioned by the king to draw up 80 maps and views of ports of the kingdom, which were engraved by his brother-in-law Le Gouaz. This drawing of Dieppe shows the towpath, the space left clear to allow boats to be pulled out of the water by horses or men. On the other side we see the quai Henri IV, the castle and Saint-Jacques church. On the right is the Hôtel d’Anvers and on the left stands the Pollet district.
