This large and dramatic landscape is a 'classic' Lowry painting; the scene is a combination of several areas around Lancashire;
The original painting is held in the Castle museum, Nottingham.

At the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, Northern England had plentiful coal and water power while the poor agriculture in the uplands meant that labour in the area was cheap.
Mining and milling, which had been practised on a small scale in the area for generations, began to grow and centralise.
The boom in industrial textile manufacture is sometimes attributed to the damp climate and soft water making it easier to wash and work fibres,
although the success of Northern fabric mills has no single clear source.
Readily available coal and the discovery of large iron deposits in Cumbria and Cleveland allowed ironmaking and, with the invention of the Bessemer process, steelmaking to take root in the region.
High quality steel in turn fed the shipyards that opened along the coasts, especially on Tyneside and at Barrow in Furness.
