Unseen Harry Walder Painting - Ince

Item #: 33482
I took this photo of an original Harry Walder in a house I was doing a job in a few years ago. The owner kindly let me take an image of it, then I subsequently lost it in an old computer!

The painting is dated 1987.

The Spencer family who commissioned the painting, their surname was painted on the rear of the barge.
I presume the Kirkless Iron Works were behind the 'Rabbit Rocks' .
Rose Bridge Colliery would have been to the right of the canal.

Must be a ONE OFF? Has anyone got a painting of a WALKING DAY? Only seen one once in a charity shop. Wish I had bought it as my wife is looking for one..
