'Accra from Government House, Gold Coast. Accra is the capital of the Gold Coast and the scene depicted is that of the bay around which the major part of the town is built. Off the end of the breakwater can be seen the hundreds of canoes which supply the town and hinterland with fish'.
Guggisberg's text:
'The water-colour showing the view from the Castle in the early morning is, to my mind, the most fascinating of the whole of Miss Cheesman's pictures. The distant red cliffs, the buildings in Accra, the long stretch of blue white surf, the group of palms on the right, even the distant cranes and import sheds, all combine in one harmonious and beautiful whole' (Guggisberg, Gold Coast News, no. 25).
