This painting depicts the Monmouth Castle of the Great Western Railway on the Dawlish Coast in Cornwall. It shows the famous landmark 'Old Man Rock' in the background. Inspired by his childhood memories of returning home to Cornwall from boarding school, Cuneo wanted to capture the moment on canvas when he would stand eagerly at the carriage window, waiting for the train to rush out of a tunnel and reveal to his delighted gaze ‘Old Man Rock’. For Cuneo, this was the signal that school was over and the holidays had started.
