Object Description

Watercolour and bodycolour.
The view upriver, from the Cornwall bank of The Tamar, shows the small island which was created between the new canal and the river itself. Lock gates were built at either end of the short stretch of waterway and, in the centre of the picture, the lockkeeper’s cottage can be seen perched on the southern tip of the island. These exhibition quality pictures are rich in social and historic content, and their scale, combined with Philip Mitchell’s remarkable attention to detail, creates a compelling record of how this important part of The Tamar Valley looked more than 150 years ago.
