Photograph of five figures in various poses outside a wooden building. From left to right are a man seated, smoking a clay pipe and facing the viewer; a fisherman standing in three-quarters right; a man seated holding a fishing rod; a woman seated, dressed in white and wearing a bonnet and a fifth man seated on the edge of a boat, partially obscured.

Cundall's premises at 168, New Bond Street, from which he worked as a publisher, editor, author and photographer, were known as the Photographic Institution and were several times visited by Prince Albert. In 1854 The Athenaeum printed a review of some of Cundall's work and this photograph was considered one of 'the gems of the series'.
