This is a pencil signed etching, 6 1/2" by 5" inside the overmat, (12 1/2" by 10 1/2" as framed), not titled, but depicting waterfront shacks and piers with a working boat in an industrial area, by noted San Francisco Bay area artist HERBERT IMRIE (1885-1976). Imrie, born in Napa and deceased in Marin County, was for many years associated with the Berkeley area. Exhibited in the 1939 Golden Gate exposition, he was president of the California Society of Etchers. Imrie is little known but was obviously an artist of talent. Note that there is an overmat that is adhering to the print, in the old style. There is edge browning near that mat and overall time browning. Despite the flaws (you'll need to cover up the stained old mat), this is a decorative and historical piece showing the old East Bay waterfront. .
