Pennell described the scene: "Black was the bridge, black the crowd crossing it, black the crowded trams. The blue-white light glowed from the ever-working shops, and the lights upon the cranes by the river-side, and on the railroad tracks, suggested the workscape by their ever winking, twinkling lines and groups and dots and masses of lamps." JOSEPH PENNEL'S PICTURES OF WAR WORK IN ENGLAND plate xxix.
