Oil on canvas painting of a full-rigged three-master schooner, port side. In the left background can be seen a line of cliffs, a paddle steamer and small sailing vessels, while on the right is a line of warships. The 'Edith' traded regularly to Gloucester in the 1890s, and was one of the vessels used in the salt trade. She was a three-masted wooden schooner of 98 tons, built at Padstow in 1865. She was a fairly frequent visitor to Gloucester and may at one time have been owned by a local ship-broker. She was reportedly destroyed by fire in Glasgow in 1914.
