Watercolour, Interior of the Granary transit shed at King's Cross, by an unknown artist, believed to be Lewis Cubitt, about 1851. Depicts the interior of the Great Northern Railway's granary. In the foreground are barges in a canal basin, with packages being loaded or unloaded from railway wagons on an adjacent track. Beyond is a bustling scene of dockers, porters, horses and wagons, with lines of cranes running the length of the building. The top half of the painting is dominated by the wooden beams supporting the roof, with a blue sky visible through glass skylights. Cubitt was the granary's architect. Framed and glazed. The frame is not original.
