Lumber and shipping baron Allan Gilmour (1805-1884) commissioned these two paintings from Robert C. Todd of his property at Wolfe's Cove, Quebec City. Each scene emphasizes an aspect of the company's activities on shore in the lumber yard, and the ships on the water which the artist has recorded in painstaking detail.
