From Pentonville Road looking west: evening. Oil on canvas. St Pancras Hotel and station can be seen from the hill which leads down from Angel, Islington. Turning on left is Penton Rise. Welsh Congregational Church is on the left and St. James's on the right. In the distance are the dome of University College and St. Pancras church tower. A number of figures can be seen on the street including a policeman, a postman and sandwich-board men. On the road there are hansom cabs, a haycart, horse-drawn buses and trams. This painting captures the atmosphere of late 19th-century London.
