This photograph shows a polluted river beside an industrial building made of corrugated iron with some scaffolding on the outside. The building is in the background on the left and the river runs from the background right to the foreground left, diagonally across the picture. There is grass in the right foreground at the edge of the river, with undergrowth of weeds and shrubs between the building and the river, which has a broken weir crossing made of stone and bricks. The colour of the water is a cloudy grey in the sunlight and a dull green in the shade, indicating pollution.
