Scope and content
Finished pencil drawing looking from one point of land across a body of water to another, which is built up. The view has been tentatively identified as a view of the Gas Works in Halifax Harbour from Point Pleasant based on a comparison with a painting in the Coverdale Collection and attributed to Falkland who was in Halifax from 1840-46 when her husband was Governor of Nova Scotia.
The composition is dramatic for Lady Falkland, it is set by a large tree worked over darkly in the foreground.
