This painting depicts working men emerging from the gates of a factory at the close of the working day. Several ride bicycles. As an artist Weight took inspiration from his surroundings in London, his family, friends and his own imagination. He painted portraits, still life, urban scenes and religious subjects. His paintings are often set in twilight, the period of the day which most stimulated him, and are frequently characterised by a sense of movement.
