'The Arrest' although an unsigned limited edition, published three yars after the artist's death,
has of recent years become quite sought after, particularly as the images become scarcer.
We can see a typical of a man being arrested, by the police who are not wearing the uniforms to which we have become accustomed
Note:- the name of the street, Lowry's humour? 'Police street'
A crowd has gathered, as is so typical of any situation in the streets, passerby interested in tghe commotion.
