Rare unsigned proof, printed on wove paper.
'Streamend' marks a spectacular return to form. It depicts a quiet rural scene, a nostalgic interpretation of the ford at Water End, a small village on the north banks of the River Lea Walk between Wheathampstead and Welwyn Garden City in Hertfordshire. A horse-drawn cart crosses the river. The brick chimneys and gables of the 17th-century Water End Farm are visible above the large barn; both the farm and church have been imported by Webb to improve the composition. - Robert Meyrick
