Liverpool has had its fair share of talented artists over the years including the greats like W G Herdman, a self-taught painter who started sketching in his early teens, documenting the city of Liverpool, making notes about how the city and its buildings were changing as the city grew.
But he was not the only artist attracted by the wonderful buildings and views the city and its suburbs has to offer. We are fortunate in this city that as well as the the magnificent collection of City Engineers photographs held at Liverpool Records Office, there is also a vast archive of other materials including watercolours by local artists.
Over the coming months I hope to feature a number of these collected works for you to enjoy and I am starting, in this article, with the works of Alfred H Jones.
