This oil painting is an imagined collage of buildings under a cloudy London sky, intended as a tribute to the long history of Newham, showing some of its splendid past. We may notice these buildings very little as we pass by every day, but the environment they create is a lasting testament to the varied interests and strengths of the people of the borough who came before us.
Going back several centuries, and with special thanks to the Victorians, it has a number of special churches, pubs, mills, town halls, civic buildings, monuments to sporting success, Bengali fish markets and much more, all reflecting its mixed and vibrant population.
Look up as you travel, and enjoy!
