This print shows a "dazzle ship" at the South Docks in Liverpool, where ships were painted with this camoflauge pattern during the war. The ships were given their "dazzle" in order to make it more difficult for enemies to track their course and speed. Originally, the patterns were painted in lighter colors like gray, blue, pink, and green, but this Wadsworth print shows a bold mix of black and white.
