Description: 

Humorous scene by unknown artist depicting hounds chasing fox right onto a ferry. Imagine the commotion to follow! Artistic series puzzle made by G.J. Hayter & Sons in 1930s, plywood, interlocking, strip cut with 24 figure pieces. Hayter made jigsaw puzzles in Bournemouth, England from 1920s-1970 when Spear & Sons bought out the firm. They issued many series of puzzles, the most common being: Popular and Topical series (strip cut), Artistic (strip cut with simple figure pieces), and Super-Cut (random cut with simple figure pieces and irregular edges). After 1970, Spear focused on producing Gold Box puzzles similar to the Artistic series but more loosely cut.  Scene probably titled, "Welcome Passengers".
