Lockwood sketched and painted both rural and urban landscapes. He sketched mainly on location but occasionally from photographs. Once he found a subject he liked he would often paint many different views. This is especially helpful to the historian as it can give more of a three-dimensional idea of what an area actually looked like. A group painted around the 1930's focused on the church and Church Road. Yardley was given one of Birmingham's first preservation orders so this view looks pretty much the same today.

Presented by Arthur Lockwood and Jean Barnsby.
