I got these pictures at the boot a while back then I squirrelled them away and forgot about them. Here they are after their long maturing process and I love them even more the second time around. As I bought them I felt a bit of a nob for purchasing childrens' drawings. Then a bloke came and picked them all up, asked the price and shot me a filthy look when I said I'd just bought them. So that made me feel much better and in my head I was all like 'Yeah! screw you buddy! I'm the winner! . . . you're the loser! don't mess with the Jo! . . . sucker!' and so on.
Anyway, what I like most is the amount of detail and the spacing; the harbour wall in this one, and the severe quiff at bottom right.
A very fine explosion and some even finer slacks in this one.
Men cutting down a tree in the distance.
A prominent pylon, power lines going over the hill and something just visible behind the hay stack.
Someone fishing off the bridge and a crane loading an enormous crate of eggs.
Can you date them? Might they be done in the 50s? I'm trying to glean their date from the hair styles, cars and general feel.
