There are a number of drawings of this subject which was a key formative image in the evolution of the artist's industrial vocabulary. An oil painting of an imaginary view based on these drawings entitled " River Scene" is in the City of Glasgow collection. This oil is illustrated in M. Leber and J. Sandling (Eds.) L.S. Lowry, Oxford and Salford Art Gallery, 1987, no 20, pl 21.
This present work was selected for the Salford L.S. Lowry Centenary Exhibition in 1987 and was reproduced on page 1 in the catalogue but was subsequently exchanged for Salford's own drawing of the same View.
