Wonder if this is in fact Penydarren ironworks, the reproduction is so poor it’s difficult to be sure but compare with this contemporary photo

The blowing engine houses and their boiler house chimneys in right foreground and other buildings in right distance look similar and so does the valley setting

Hi there. I've just received a fantastic copy of cyfartha ironworks painted by the British school. Do you know what year it was painted.
Many thanks.
Kind regards.

Could this be by George Travers [active 1851-65] who exhibited Iron Works, South Wales priced at £35 at the National Institution in 1856?
