Birch visited France in the spring of 1923, on a car journey with two artist friends: Harding and Winter. St Jean Pres De Port is in South West France, at the beginning of a great mounatin pass over the Pyrenees into Spain.
Exhibited Paintings from the 1923 trip were exhibited at the Royal Watercolour Society that year. OLD BRIDGE NEAR ST JEAN PRES DE PORT was at the Royal Academy in 1939 (No 489).
