    Fascinating, where can we see the whole series? And including a frame saw as mentioned by Bill Cotton in yesterday’s post.

    Interesting drawings from a historical perspective. While the “artist” does not appear to be formally trained (tentative line and stiffly rendered appendages etc.), the drawings still convey quite a bit of “life”.


  3. Simon Clarke says:

    We bought the Howie watercolours because we thought they were important in that they showed every day folk doing every day jobs. Something you don’t often see. We wanted them to go to a public institution so that the public and researchers would have access to them.
    They have been bought by the Edinburgh City Archives which is great news.
