Dr John Moore in Venice - late 18th Century

from A View of Society and Manners in Italy. Volume 1, page 21:

 

After viewing everything in the arsenal, the Archduke and Duchess, with all the company, were invited on board some boats, which had been prepared for their reception. They were directly rowed to that part of the lake from whence there was the most advantageous view of Venice, a band of music performing all the time; while the sailors, in two or three small boats, were employed in fishing oysters, which they opened, and presented to the company.
