In the 1920's when Frank Taylor Lockwood first moved to Birmingham he produced a few watercolours illustrating the fields and farms around Yardley, Sheldon and Acocks Green. These were topics he continued to write about and paint in the forthcoming decades.When looking at a map of Yardley and Sheldon in the 1920's Lockwood's work illustrates how rural these areas were. A map only ten years later show the blank spaces where fields and meadows once existed, now covered by a network of roads.
