It seems that Lowry painted one per year from 1947 (or earlier) to 1950, all executed in the same materials and technique.

Other works from the series were done during Lowry’s yearly trips to Cleator Moor in Cumbria to visit his friend and supporter Rev Geoffrey Bennett (1902-91). Bennett conducted Lowry’s funeral service.

One of six original works by Lowry included in the Modern & Contemporary Art Sale at Tennants on June 17, it is estimated at £40,000-60,000.
