with Lefevre Gallery, London.
Mrs C.B. Notley; Sotheby's, London, 7 April 1971, lot 96, where purchased by the present owner.

A very typical industrial scene that we would immediately associate with the work of L.S. Lowry.
A rather desolate appocolypti landscape with the colours to match.
It should be noticed that this painting was one of many owned by Lord Forte,
Having sold it at auction in 2011 , the painting achieved £2,617,250
Judging by the increase of prices in Lowry's works generally, one can only imagine the figure it could achieve today.
