Please see below.
The artist's description of the painting follows: Sailors and workmen gather
to listen to the Salvation Army. Shopkeepers and housewives come to their
doorways and customs officers stop work to hear the singing in front of
the Customs House on Poole Quay on a winter's evening in 1905.
The Customs House was erected on the site of a previous building that
burnt down in 1813. The design of the building was based on the Guildhall
with steps leading up to the first floor where transactions were made.
Weighing, examination and storage took place on the ground floor.
The wooden mast with twin arms is a replica of the Town Beam which
was used to weigh goods taken into and out of the town.
