Eliza Susan Quincy painted this watercolor of the birthplaces of John and John Quincy Adams in Quincy, Mass. from the vantage point of Penn's Hill. The drawing is one of a series of nine that appear in Quincy's extraordinary two-volume unpublished memoir of her grandfather Josiah. She was a prolific diarist, genealogist, and amateur artist.
