Adshead frequently went on family holidays and sketching trips in Wales.  In 1934, working alongside Eric Ravilious, she painted murals in the Colwyn Bay Pier Pavilion.   During the War she spent summer holidays with her children at Barmouth, a seaside resort on Cardigan Bay, North Wales.  The Landlady's Daughters dates to the same period as the Imperial War Museums Troops Riding into Barmouth

Working at a time when expectations of women were still largely confined to issues of domesticity Adshead's prodigious professional output was noteworthy.
