This is a view of Lancaster, taken from the bridge that carries the Lancaster Canal over the river Lune.
This print was one of the first to be published in a series called Picturesque Views of England and Wales. Like many images in the series, it makes a series of artful contrasts, between the modern canal bridge and the old buildings of the town, between rest and work, and between agriculture and modern industry.
