North Parade in Bath, Somerset, is a historic terrace built around 1741 by John Wood, the Elder. This composition shows walkers around a lake, a punt on the water and fishing lodge on far bank (right). William Payne (1760 - 1830) was an important watercolour landscape painter, but also a printmaker who published some of his own works. He started as an engineer at Plymouth, Devon.
