The sculpture captures two draymen, one on the reins atop the cart and the other feeding one of the dray horses. The cart is laden with Vaux beer barrels on the back, bottles and crates, as well as workday items such as a bucket and shovel for muck. Keel Square is the site of the former Vaux Brewery, and is part of major redevelopment in that part of Sunderland.
