WAG 8152

This scene is a view from Richmond Hill in London looking down to the Thames river and surrounding area. There are several groups of figures in the foreground; a flower girl and others resting underneath a tree on the right hand side, children playing hoop in the centre foreground and a man in a top hap with his family on the far left. A tree dominates the right hand side of the composition. On the left hand side, the wheel of a carriage and a coachman in a red uniform can be seen, cut off by the picture edge.
