This was possibly taken at the nearby fishing village of Newhaven, which provided ample subject matter for Hill & Adamson. Their un-published volume on this series has recently been brilliantly re-created by Stevenson. The sunlight raking off the bricks provides a sense of texture and drama and the natural light falloff of the lens in the corners additionally frames this scene. The negative has been waxed for printing and is inscribed in pencil "3".
