Hardie writes, "The harbour at Penzance: sunset. The church rises above the houses towards the right; shipping to the left. In the centre, two vessels (the left with three bare masts; the right, a brig with one sail set) cast long shadows on the water.

The entire proceeds of the sale of the 50 proofs was given by the artist and publishers jointly to War Charities."

Penzance is a town and port in Cornwall, England. Situated in the shelter of Mount's Bay, the town faces south-east onto the English Channel, is bordered to the west by the fishing port of Newlyn and to the east by the civil parish of Ludgvan.
