The Mary Ann also flies a company flag with the initials HWMH.


Other ships are depicted.  In the foreground is a  side-wheeler with steam issuing from its two funnels.  Beyond the Maryann can be seen a partial view of anther three-masted ship while to the left foreground is a small two-masted ship.
