This painting is an example of one of L.S. Lowry's famous crowd scenes. The colour palette is unusually light and airy for the artist, with pink and gold-tinged buildings lifting the atmosphere. Lowry said of this painting, 'To say the truth, I was not thinking very much about the people... They were part of a private beauty that haunted me!'
 
In his many depictions of north-west England Lowry makes industrial scenes his own, showing how industry had affected the landscape and how the inhabitants of the urban areas lived out their daily lives. Marches, evictions, accidents, illness, relaxation at the park or the fair, going to work, coming out of school and going to the football match were all subjects for Lowry's brush or pencil. His works were created in his own unique style, poetic yet not sentimental, compelling, even at times disturbing, but never judgemental.
