A ship rounding the outer wooden pier at Maryport. The red ball on the pier was raised to show sufficient depth of water for ships to enter harbour. This signal to ships off of Maryport had originally been a flag on Mote Hill. In 1842 to conform with the international code, it became a red ball. In 1846 it was moved to the new South Pier, where it is shown.
