In The Meeting Place Lowry delicately captures the isolation of the almost ghost-like figures
set against the thick, heavy smog of the industrial setting. The brushwork of the two seated
figures is especially thin and light, with the panel almost visible, in comparison to the
heavy brushwork of the grey and uncompromising landscape seen behind the railings.
Even the street lamp cannot offer a glimmer of hope in this dark and lonely setting of
Second World War Britain.

With the mass demolition that faced many industrial regions following the war, Lowry
began to turn his attention towards the depiction of the individuals within the scene.
Lowry's figures begin to take on a greater depth of character, especially in his depictions
of derelicts, tramps, vagrants and other 'outsider' figures, which is already visible by 1946,
the year this small work was painted.
