York Street leading to Charles Street, Manchester

Title

York Street leading to Charles Street, Manchester

Description

Impressionistic smog-ridden industrial scene, depicting York Street, Manchester, looking towards an arched railway bridge spanning the street, over which a steam train is passing. Two labourers shovelling a pile of coal on the road in foreground to right, a single motor car driving along the road to left. Crowded pavements and tall buildings to left and right, a grid of tiny lights shining through the smog and steam from a large office building, possibly India House, in the background beyond the railway bridge.
