Shipping off Bristol
A painting showing West Indiamen alongside Bristol docks on the Avon. The ship in the foreground on the left is being unloaded with timber from America. Some of the unloaded timber floats on the water. A man can be seen standing on a pile of floating planks as one of them is being lowered down from the ship. A figure leans over the stern to manage the process. The ship may be having her mast stepped. There is another pile of wooden planks floating on the starboard side of the ship. Two men in a rowing boat are using a pole and hook to catch a smaller pile of planks floating in the foreground on the right. The barge on the right is a Severn trow which conveyed a lot of cargo up and down the river, and, as in this painting, would have brought iron down the Severn.
