Pictures from Warwick and Leamington, Pictured by Ernest Haslehust [1866 – 1949] and Described by George Morley, Blackie & Son Limited, London and Glasgow, in the Beautiful England series (undated).

Yann Lovelock kindly pointed out to me that the tramway shown in the Eastgate painting was last used in 1930, so the paintings were clearly made before then; evidence in the text and also clothing worn by people in the pictures suggests that a date of approximately 1920 is likely. The illustrations are I think still copyright, as this book was produced in the UK and it’s less than 70 years since the death of the artist, so I have marked them as for non-commercial use only.

In the Jephson Gardens, Leamington

“Enter the Jephson Gardens now by this eastern end, and go right through to the Parade, and to the Pump Room and Gardens across the Parade.

[picture: The East Gate, Warwick]

The East Gate, Warwick

...the beholder now looks down a narrow street, on each side of which here and there are dwelling-houses preserving their Elizabethan aspect, and at the further end of which, looming up like the background to a stage scene, stands, in all the grandeur of centuries of decay, the ancient East Gate of the town – all, indeed, that remains of a building ornamental [...] [more...] [$]
