This painting was possibly painted for a partner in Stead McAlpin & Company, who purchased the textile printing mill at Cummersdale, Carlisle, in about 1844. The mill produced high quality fabrics. On the extreme left a locomotive on the newly constructed Maryport to Carlisle railway can be seen. A man, possibly the artist, and his dog are seated on the left bank of the river Caldew in the foreground. Bough's dog became his artistic trademark.
