Frank Taylor Lockwood did not have to go far to find a suitable subject to sketch or paint as he frequently produced images of where he lived. His watercolours of municipal houses and suburban gardens are an interesting contrast to his watercolours of farms, cottages and fields.It shows the neatness and uniformity of the inter-war period corporation housing schemes. Interestingly, considering Lockwood's preoccupation with recording architectural change within the city, Dalston Road was itself demolished in March 1994, together with Bramley Road and much of the surrounding housing development.

Presented by Arthur Lockwood and Jean Barnsby.
