War Artists Advisory Committee commission watercolour on paper of The Street of Immaculate Conception, Senglea during evacuation. Showing a view along the street of the Immaculate Conception in Senglea, with Maltese civilians busy removing valuables and possessions from their homes. Men, women and children carry items of furniture and valuables, evidently in a hurry to evacuate the area due to bombardment. The houses themselves are typically Maltese, being made of white stone. There is evidence of some light bomb damage and a horse and cart waits at the end of the street.
