Condition/Notes : Good. The colours are good and the painting is in good condition with no signs of foxing or damage. The painting depicts the old Billingsgate Wharf on the River Thames with two cargo ships, a tug-boat and several other small boats. The scene brings back memories of the once busy Port of London which does not exist today. The partly overcast sky sets a boundary to the painting and directs the viewer to the activity surrounding the ships. The study is signed in the lower rh corner in the artist's usual manner and is displayed within a sandstone coloured mount which is likewise in good condition. The gilt decorated frame is in good condition except for a couple of small losses around the edges; the Kraft backing board is secured with pins and sealed with 48mm gummed framing tape. A label is attached top lh corner "River Thames Billingsgate" and a small label to the rh corner with ref numbers printed. Hanging cord attached.
