The ships moored on the River Nene in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire are the 'Carolina', 'Queen', 'Alexandra', 'Robert James Haynes', 'Protector' and 'Richard Young'.

Smith probably took this photograph as part of a series used to illustrate engineer Thomas Page's report on the development of the Nene Valley.
