Occupying the central panel of the Town Hall mural, this female figure represents the town. Dressed in blue, the colour of the flax flower, with the town crest on her chest, she holds a distaff. The figure was modeled by Kathleen, a daughter of Newbery’s friend and Bridport mayor, E. S. Reynolds. In the background, East Cliff at West Bay and a China tea clipper, possibly the 'Thermopylae' or the 'Mary Hounsell' are depicted.
