    Default Dingle Paintings

    I'm trying to find the artist who did these paintings and find out where they're located?

    One painting is entitled "Riverside Dingle Bank Watercolour 1893" and and the other ""Riverside Dingle Bank Watercolour 1893" appeared in the back of the guide to the Liverpool International Garden Festival, 1984. Unfortunately, there are no references for the artist except to say that he/she was "to paint several scenes here." Both paintings look like they are of Dingle Bank.

    The publisher of the guide was Brunswick Printing and Publishing Co. Ltd. but I'm not sure whether they're still in business?

    There are two Dingle watercolourists, Thomas being the younger was painting at this time.
    There are examples of his work to view, just to see if you regognise the style? If you so wish.

    Thanks Oudeis, but the Dingle is the subject not the name of the artist.

    No.

    You surmise that. There is nothing to say what they are pictures of.

    Being a cataloguer can be a tedious job.

    One of the paintings actually says "Dingle Bank" The paintings are used in the "Origins and Background" section of the International Garden Festival Guide. Part of the festival site was on "The Cazzie" The old cast iron shore, and part of it was on the Dingle - a tree lined glen that went down to the Mersey. This has been covered on the Dingle Glen in Old Photos thread.

    I think I'm making some progress.

    The catalogue below represents the Watercolour Paintings by Florence M. Willink [Originals Remain in Family Possession].

    These documents are held at National Museums Liverpool, Maritime Archives and Library I've highlighted [in Red] the 2nd Dingle painting [in the OP] showing the lodge, which I believe is the entry below. I'll upload the rest of the paintings once I've photographed/ copied them from the MMM.

    Very interesting.
    Is that the Maritime Museum?
    I'm always impressed with people who know how to find things on-line.

    Hi Roni, the link: a very interesting literary appraisal - thanks!

    I hadn't appreciated that Harriet Beecher Stowe had stayed with the Cropper's before just now.

    William Roscoe who is mentioned in the article also wrote The Nymph of the Dingle which is copied in post#16 on the Dingle Glen in Old Photos thread.

    And there's me thinking this forum is full of competing geeks - yet to me this single post outgeeks them all! This'll keep 'em busy for weeks!... Harriet Beecher Stowe and Nathaniel Hawthorne having a Dingle Bank connection indeed! Defoe's encounter with Lancashire Clowns! Who knew about Tom Paine's bones?
    Roscoe living and dying in Lodge Lane... Where's the Blue Plaque?

    Congratulations, oh Queen of The Geeks!

    'Willink & Thicknesse' - Cunard Building? They were also commissioned by Harrods to put a Liverpool store on the St Peter's site, but it fell through. Woolworth's won the day.

    I got trapped in there, you keep going don't you!? I was shocked to read about Tom Paine's bones. Never heard that before. That was a facinating read. I am shocked I did not know this stuff already.

    Queen of the Geeks, I have to tell the person who called me a geek who herself is a super geek!! If I put her job title up here it would scream GEEK!!!

    "Mr Thicknesse" - what a name for an architect .

    A partnership between William Edward Willink [1856-1924] & Philip Coldwell Thicknesse [1860-1920]

    Hi squiggs, I can see you've got a bee in your bonnet over this - although it's hard to makeout in your photo?

    My pleasure Lindy. I have to double check it all as I did not know most of the information on there. Fascinating if it is all true. I think I have read once before about Dickens signing up as a policeman to get info but the rest is news to me.
