This view of the docks at Goole, on Humberside, is an evocative portrayal of shipping lying alongside the quays. Goole was founded in the 1920s for the export of Yorkshire coal. The warehouses, cranes and dockside furniture are portrayed in considerable detail. Goole is a busy port with shipping links to mainland Europe and the rest of the world. The docks handle large amounts of cargo, both import and export. Cars, timber and grain are three of the major imports. A canal network is also used to transport goods from the port further inland. This painting of the docks at daybreak is devoid of people and the low viewpoint exaggerates the scale and height of the docks and the cranes. The scene is calm and the cranes and shipping are reflected in the water.
