Hi, all.
      I have just Aquired a rather large water colour painting done in the 1930/40's , its about 4 foot by 3.5 foot, It depicts a interesting group of people waiting to get coke (the heating fuel type (coal).) out side a cycle shop, lots of bicycles leaning against the kirb and out side the shop. Racers/ roadsters etc. Children playing with a soapbox cart too.
    The whole painting is very delightful and depicts the bicycle in its day.
   There is no signature, but is very professional, mounted in a large frame. I was wondering if any of the list had any idea who may of painted it. Any one that can help, I can email a jpeg of it to you.
