"John Hay published occasional prints of local subjects, notably Hay's Views of Aberdeen, 1840, and also portraits after John Phillips in 1838. In 1841 Hay advertised from the Repository of Arts at 73 Union Street as a Carver, Gilder and Printseller, offering chimney, pier and dressing glasses, prints and drawing books, and every requisite for drawing and painting; additionally he advertised at some length his assortment of mathematical, optical and philosophical instruments, including telescopes, surveyors' instruments and spectacles, and he acted as an agent of the Thames Plate Glass Company. He received a Royal Appointment as Carver and Gilder to Queen Victoria at Aberdeen in 1846. He retired from business in 1847, thanking his patrons for their custom over the previous 36 years and at the same time soliciting their support in favour of his 2 sons, James and John Hay, who would be carrying on the business (Aberdeen Journal 14 July 1847).
The view shows the mid shingle salmon fishers in the foreground along with linen bleaching activities by women on the south bank of the Dee. St Nicholas Steeple, the Tollbooth Spire and Castle Hill Barracks are visible in the distance."
