D. Wainwright and C. Dinn, Henry Scott Tuke 1858 - 1929: Under Canvas, London, 1989, p. 131, pl. 115.
This rapidly executed watercolour study depicts Lowestoft fishing boats moored at Falmouth docks. The subject was a favourite of Tuke's, who painted the boats at Falmouth as well as when he went to Lowestoft in 1905. A steam-powered crane used on the dockside at Falmouth features on the far left of the picture.
