    According to the Cooling Galleries label on the reverse, the present lot had a narrow escape in 1940:

    'This is one of the paintings saved by the efficient work of the London Fire Brigade/ and with the co-operation of the night staff of Messrs. Walpole's, when incendiary/ bombs dropped through the roof of the Cooling Galleries, 92 New Bond Street, about/ twelve o'clock one night./
    Most of the paintings were safely transferred to shipping agents, from whence they/ were in the safe hands of the British Navy. Proving that despite the heaviest and/ most sustained bombing attack in the history of the world, Britain Delivered the Goods/ September, 1940.'
