Painted in the garden of a worker’s cottage in Victoria Road, Cowes during Cowes Week. Victoria Road leads out of Cowes towards Newport and starts at The Duke of York Pub at one end of the town centre. There was an air of an earlier age in the Cowes of the 1980’s. It retained the feeling of a seafaring town despite the yachties who came to race during the summer months. The meandering high street which followed the Sea Front was home to local butchers, bakers, curiosity shops and other small local businesses that served the residents of Cowes. The town had an aura of benign neglect.
