This is one of Bough’s best-known paintings. It shows Edenside cricket ground to the north of the city and was possibly painted for Mr Howe, one of the umpires, who is shown in the painting. This is an important historical record of a cricket match, as it shows the players' outfits which included a top hat. Chimneys, factory buildings and ships' masts on Carlisle Canal can be seen on the skyline.
