The landmarks in this scene include the Terrace, Strand and Vaughan Parade. The turreted building is Waldon Castle, demolished in 1962. The painting can be dated as it shows St Mary Magdalene’s church, built 1848/1849, but without the tower and spire which were added 1853/1854. The figures dressed in red, at the bottom right corner of the painting, are believed to represent the ‘Misses Durnford’, eccentric twin sisters who became known locally as ‘The Alphington Ponies’.
