Its hard to date this etching: either just pre-First World War or shortly afterwards, the latter being more likely as Langmaid had more time on his hands then for drawing and painting. A light cruiser lies at anchor whilst the ship’s boats are given some exercise by willing/volunteered hands! Edinburgh in the background has been very finely etched and stands out most pleasingly in this etching.
