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.On the 7th May 1945 Germany surrendered and the 8th May was declared V-E day (Victory in Europe). Many people held street parties and celebrations, much like the ones here.
