 LS Lowry painted much more than matchstick men .....


There's an Exhibition at the Tate Britain that I'd love to see.

I have a soft spot for Lowry. The Manchester Primary school I attended in the 1950s had Prints (or perhaps the real thing?) on the corridor walls. I used to study them when waiting for the school nurse to do the annual check-up stuff. Then there's the Easter Fair at Daisy Nook, painted in 1946. My Mum and Dad met for the first time at Daisy Nook Fair in the late 1930s.
