Hest Bank Whitsun 1961 500 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

Hest Bank Whitsun 1961 500 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

Inquisitive faces peer through the windows of the Hest Bank camping coaches as a ‘Princess Coronation’ class Pacific No.46254 ‘City Of Stoke-On-Trent’ rushes north through the station in Lancashire on a Birmingham to Glasgow express and the 1053 Workington-London Euston slides into the up platform double-headed by a ‘Patriot’ 4-6-0 No.45507 ‘Royal Tank Corps’ and a ‘Jubilee’ 4-6-0. Hest Bank station was opened by the Lancaster & Carlisle Railway in 1846 and closed by British Railways in 1969.

Artist Bio:
After graduating from Birmingham College of Art Philip Hawkins pursued a career as a technical illustrator in the railway industry and then as a press photographer and freelance illustrator through further career changes before concentrating on fine art.

A childhood spent in Birmingham surrounded by the sight and sounds of trains coupled with an enduring passion for railways influenced his decision to specialise in the subject. This fascination and a natural artistic talent have combined to make his work highly sought after worldwide. He has travelled extensively in pursuit of his quarry and drawings, photographs and notes of reference all serve to add a very personal note to his work.
