"Baking Day at 43 Fitzalan Street" Original Oil Painting on Canvas by Joe Scarborough

£6,900.00

“43 Fitzalan Street. When mum died just after the War, when I was 8, I lived there with my Nan and uncle George. Nan baked every other Tuesday, starting at around 11, Monday was washing day. That’s uncle George, searching for his glasses as usual, which he struggled to see without his glasses on.
 
The radio was always tuned to American Forces Network, great jazz music and lots of Glen Miller as I recall. On the dresser also, a photo of my late grandad and a mug adorned with the timeless phrase ‘A present from Cleethorpes.’
 
The newspaper on the table tells of a Sex Scandal which, if memory serves, was vaguely connected to the Royal Family.”
   
After a few more moments of reminiscing Joe picked up the canvas and turned it over and continued.
 
“Yes, I thought so. I made this canvas. I couldn’t afford to buy such a big canvas from a posh art shop so I went to Maxeys Upholsterers near Kemsley House in town and bought some deckchair canvas for 6 shillings and 7 pence a yard, acquired a bit of wood and behold a 40”x 30” canvas.”
