While looking at this photo during catalogue selection it struck me as a very modern image for the Lawrence collection. I suspect that we will be much nearer the end of the date range rather than the start. The fishing boat in the little inlet will not help with dating as the design of these boats does not seem to change over the years, you could buy a boat very similar in design today and the only difference would be a strengthened stern section to accommodate a small outboard engine.
