This industrial landscape contains many features typical of Lowry's work; smoking chimneys, terraced houses, the Stockport Viaduct, and figures swarming through the city's streets and open spaces.
Though seen as a realist, Lowry's works were largely composed from a variety of repeated motifs, becoming increasingly nostalgic as time went on. The artist said, 'I hadn't the slightest idea of what
I was going to put in the canvas when I started the picture but it eventually came out as you see it. This is the way I like working best.'
