Beautiful handmade, blank greetings cards featuring quality reproductions of my paintings of old Luton.
5 x 7 inches (12.7 x 17.8cm)
Having been a theatrical scenic artist for many years I have recently branched out into much smaller artworks. My interest in the historical and lost buildings of Edwardian Luton inspired me to use them as a subject for my acrylic paintings. Each card features a professionally printed image on water colour paper and a brief history of the featured location.
This card shows the former Phoenix Brewery which stood on Park Street West in Luton for over 100 years. Although Luton Is primarily know for its hat and motor manufacturing it was also once a major centre for brewing having three breweries at one time. The most famous was J.W.Greens a highly successful company which eventually merged with Flowers until it became a significant part of Whitbread Plc who still have a presence in the town. This fine building no longer exists having been demolished in the mid sixties.
