Famous for his paintings of views of the docks at Liverpool, Glasgow and Hull. In this painting he concentrates on the golden glow cast from the shop fronts through the fog, and reflected on the wet cobbles. The Omnibus receding from the viewer down a perfectly straight street is a characteristic and effective device, which Grimshaw repeated many times in such works. As an entirely self-taught painter, Grimshaw was heavily influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites, whose detailed styles he initially copied in his landscapes.
