The Wharf and Quay Street, St Ives, Cornwall
"One of a great series of studies of St Ives, Cornwall. The Wharf & Quay Street from Seagull Flats, Morning. The Harbour Beach Foresand, cottages & Quay House, St Leonard's Chapel, the Pilot's Office (now the Harbour Master's Office), punts on the beach & washing drying, so it's probably Monday. On the bottom right is the large sewer pipe at the bottom of the small slipway Curnow's Slip."
