    This was a snap purchase in our local Sunday carboot. Arthur Sheldon Phillips was a renowned naval water colourist. This shipyard scene in own and ink is late work and shows a naval scene thought to be Newport Docks, South Wales, UK.
    His signature is at bottom right.
    35x44cm.

      Sure looks neat & clean. Not like any boatyards I have seen here in SXM.

      I suspect it is a naval dockyard, or more of a national port.

      Working on wooden hull coasters ?

      OMGosh !!!!!!!

      More likely to be Scarborough where the boat was registered. One website claims he was an expert on the East Cost fleet...

      You might be right, Lustrousone. I am just saying what was reported to me. Interesting. Thanks.

      "SH" is for that area ? I was thinking Germany but my quick search failed.

      As Christine rightly says, Scarborough for the boat registration.

      Newport (Gwent) boats would show the letters NT. Not sure an in-shore Scarborough trawler would have done the round-trip for maintenance so far from home.

      I think everything you have written is correct.

      Maybe the seller was mistaken. It bears a Frodsham (Cheshire) dealer label, not that that means much.
