In a letter to Salford Museum & Art Gallery Lowry wrote, ‘It gives me great pleasure that Salford have bought this picture for I have always thought it was my most characteristic mill scene.’ The painting is based on an earlier pastel drawing Lowry made in about 1917 which was one of his first composite industrial scenes.
