This picture represents the well-known shipyard of Elias Cox at Bridport Harbour, whose ships sailed many seas in all kinds of weather. The spectator is placed immediately at the front door of the house lived in by Mr Cox. Left and right are two ships in the process of construction surrounded by staging and busy with men. The eye follows between these across the basin to where the old crane house and lime kiln filled the quay, backed by the Bridport Arms, while the green slope of the East Cliff forms a fitting distance to the picture.
