This drawing is a typical Lowry landscape composition, with a centrally-placed road leading away into the far distance. Sometimes these images are empty of people, but in this case there is a group of people in the road near the house. Cottages and barns are balanced by banks and fences and a bit of hedge.
Lowry first visited Lytham on the Fylde coast as a small child and came back many times during his life. He was fascinated by the sea and often drew and painted the yachts he saw at Lytham. His family holidayed there and his parents even chose it as their honeymoon destination. Yet away from the water, he loved to wander in the countryside around Lytham and produced a whole series of rural landscape paintings and drawings with clumped trees, fields with haystacks and scattered dwellings.
