Frank Taylor Lockwood worked as a graphic artist in the design department at Cadbury's, Bournville. In his spare time he travelled around Birmingham with his sketchbook, recording subjects of interest. A large collection of his artwork, both topographical and commercial, was presented to Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery by his son and daughter in 1995. This watercolour shows the view from a bedroom window of the artist's home. It shows the neatness and uniformity of the inter-war period corporation housing schemes. Bramley Road was demolished in March 1994, together with much of the surrounding housing development.
