Naval, sailing and merchant vessels seen on the waters in front of the Island of Gorée, Senegal. The island was one of the first places in Africa to be settled by Europeans, as the Portuguese settled on the Island in 1444; it was then captured by the United Netherlands in 1588, then the Portuguese again, and again the Dutch. It was named after the Dutch island of Goeree and on the hill behind stands the Orange and Nassau Fort. In 1664 the island was taken by the British.
