Information from accompanying cards: A very fine view of Hereford appears under the gilt of the fore edge. A river scene with great detail is of Hereford from across the river and shows the buildings at the riverside with the church and other buildings in the background. On the near side of the river a fisherman sits on the bank and a small boat is in the center of the stream.
