Sans Pareil and Novelty at Rainhill Trials

One of the images donated to Metal by Eric Shenton. This painting, apparently executed for Rocket 150 by the same artist as “Rocket and Skew Bridge” and “Excitement at seeing the Rocket”, shows the Sans Pareil and the Novelty at the Rainhill Trials: the latter bears a flag with its name on. The Rocket is ahead of them both, about to pass under the Skew Bridge: this symbolises its victory over them in the Trials
