A typical Copenhagen motive by Howe. Across Copenhagen Harbour, we see the workshops at Burmeister & Wain diesel engine factory and the tower of Christian's Church in the city area called Christianshavn. In the foreground, fishermen from Gilleleje on the Northern coast of Sealand are preparing to sell the catch of the day. Apart from the few glimpses one can have of the church tower between today's office buildings, all of this motive has now disappeared.
