Footnotes
It is quite rare for any vessel in Harris's paintings to be named, however going by the name on the port bow and the pennant being flown from her mainmast, the lead vessel is a barque named Fearless. It has proven difficult to track any details about Fearless, but unfortunately not all vessels were recorded in Lloyd's annual register. Pilot boat number 4 featured in the lower right of the composition was named Faith. She was built around 1845 and was approximately 35 feet long. Over the years she competed in a number of races with other pilot boats from Neath and Port Talbot as well as Swansea. In 1845 she came in first amongst thirteen other boats, and in 1854 led from start to finish amongst nine boats in the race. In 1858 she tied for first, in 1862 came third, but due to a mishap in 1863 came last. She survived until about 1870 when replaced by the pilot boat Benson. Looking beyond the shipping scene in the foreground, one can see Oystermouth in the distance, which is on the west side of Swansea Bay and south of Swansea itself. R.G. Howell's book 'Under Sail - Swansea Cutters, Tallships and Seascapes' published in 1987 features a number of Harris's paintings and judging from the compositions in the publication it is likely that the present work was painted in the 1850s.
