The racing yachts were out from Victoria Yacht Club in Southsea. Beyond the yachts to the left can be seen Fort Blockhouse in Gosport along with the campanile of Holy Trinity. Portsmouth Cathedral is shown to the right as well as Clarence Pier which was destroyed by bomber aircraft in 1941.
We only sell original etchings by Wyllie, each bearing his actual pencil signature in the lower margin. The original etchings have a gradation and subtlety of tone which cannot be achieved with modern methods of reproduction.
