The immediate focal point of this etching carried out in 1918 is the street scene and its fine perspective in the houses fronting the highway. A horse drawn wagon appears to be preparing to make its journey up the hill. Tall trees break up the picture plane with Durham Castle nestled between them high up on the hill. The clever perspective draws the eye to the horizon.
