A charmingly naive bustling landscape with a view towards ships on a harbor. A lone man in a top hat walks purposefully towards a small red brick church, as pleasure seekers and fisherman ply the quiet waters in the mid-ground.

Painting flaking and re-touch to sky; area of paint loss and re-touch to large tree at right of walking figure; minor flaking and tarnish to frame.
