This is an image of Newark town scrip from the Civil War. It has a vignette of the breakwater and Cape Henlopen taken from artwork by William Strickland, who engineered the breakwater in the 1820s. The H. Lighthouse is faint on the left at the top of the dune. The shorter range light in on the point of the Cape. Lewes is vaguely seen in the background.
