Daily Photo: 05/02/10 – Number 16 in days gone by
February 5, 2010 by Rob Powell
Number 16 St Alfege Passage is now rather well known for being the B&B run by local actor, Robert Gray. But before it was turned into a guesthouse, it was F. Taylor’s corner shop and as this picture – provided by Robert – shows, it sold groceries, cakes, bread and Wall’s Ice cream.
Robert also gave me a copy of this sketch below which shows the preliminary workings of a painting of Number 16 by the artist, John Christopherson. Robert would very much like to track down the finished painting that came from this sketch.
