The back of Old Leith Pier
Description
People gather on the shore next to the pier at Leith in Edinburgh. Women stand by a grounded boat, while nearby a man sits on a collection of jetsam which includes an anchor. A barrel bobs on the waves lapping the shoreline. The masts of ships, a watch tower and the hill of Arthur's Seat can be seen in the background.
