The view is of the Oude Schans Canal, looking north, with the Montelbaans Tower on the left and the docks in the distance. At the foot of the Tower a crowd has gathered to witness the departure of several small boats loaded with figures. It is believed that the scene depicted in the painting is that of the embarkation of sailors, soldiers and dignitaries of the VOC (Dutch East India Company), an event which took place twice yearly from the foot of the Montelbaans Tower.
