This morning I heard on BBC radio about a Norman Cornish exhibition at Gallery North. That brought back some memories. I remember visiting a Cornish exhibition at the Stone gallery, on St Mary's place, in 1965/6. At the time I was a student at Rutherford College of Technology, the precursor of Newcastle Poly. and Northumbria University. I lived in the Claude Gibb Hall of residence in its opening year. This was the view of Sandyford from my 7th floor room. (Hmmm! I don't know if I have managed to upload the photo. I don't use Facebook so I am unfamiliar with sending messages/photos). If you can't see the photo here check out, http://www.peterloud.co.uk/photos/ On the this website I have many of my old photos of Newcastle and Northumbria. Some are very good social history photographs.
Do you still sell Norman Cornish artwork and prints?
