Catalogue entry

This view is continued on folio 8 verso opposite (D35502), under which the possible subject is discussed. In this half, small boats are shown in a harbour or beached.
Technical notes:
There is some brown staining at the gutter, possibly indicating water damage in the 1928 Tate flood.
