Clint exhibited a number of Hampstead subjects in the late 1840s and early 1850s. The view here appears to be from what used to be Gospel Oak Fields in Kentish Town, looking towards Hampstead, with the spire of Christ Church (consecrated 1852) piercing the horizon. In the middle distance work is shown in progress on the railway line from Camden Town to Willesden, which opened in 1855. The structures towards the right are brick kilns.
