Johnson and Greutzner’s Dictionary of British Artists refers to Edmund D. Young who is probably the same as artist listed in Harris and Halsby's Dictionary of Scottish painters as Edward Drummond Young. He exhibited flower paintings at the Royal Scottish Academy between 1908 and 1940 and also exhibited at Glasgow, Liverpool and the Royal Academy, London and also worked as a photographer in Edinburgh. A fine still life in the style of the Glasgow colourists was sold in London in 2001. His book, 'The Art of the Photograph' was published in 1931. He founded the Pen and Pencil Club and the Rustic Arts Club.

The bright bluish tonality of the present painting is reminiscent of William John Leech, as is the manner in which the paint is handled. The long shadow cast by the figures suggests early morning. A woman in Breton costume busies herself with the reins of her cart horse. Perhaps she has just arrived from an outlying village and has brought produce for the market stalls. She has thrown some hay for the horse to feed on beneath the tree, which also provides shade from the morning sun. Another horse is tethered alongside as shoppers make their way to and from the market. The setting is is a corner of one of the many side streets, which lead into the town from the quayside. The market in Concarneau continues to this day and takes place on the quayside in the old port.
