Josua de Grave, who lived in The Hague from 1678 onward, appears to have stayed in Delft for a few weeks in 1695 since he made several drawings of the city's sights in June 1695. This drawing shows the Schiedam (on the right) and Rotterdam (on the left) Gates. These gates were destroyed in the nineteenth century.
