The Boat Shed, exhibited 1939, oil on canvas, 715 x 920mm, Dudley Museum & Art Gallery.

The painting is almost certainly of the boating lake at Cannon Hill Park, Edgbaston, Birmingham. Boats are still available for hire here, but the old Boat House has gone and the Midland Arts Centre now provides the backdrop. Note though the shape of the area where the boat jetties now protrude, this is the same as is reproduced in the painting.
