This is another of the three canvases of this title. In this version, which is also set at the dock beside the Old Falcon Tavern, Gravesend, Kathleen Newton was the model for the female figure as she was in one of the others. As in that one, she wears the same triple-caped greatcoat that Tissot portrayed her wearing in numerous other paintings, including The Terrace of the Trafalgar Tavern, Greenwich, London.
