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.

“For from leafy Leamington every old, historic, and romantic spot in the whole of Shakeslpeare’s classic land can be visited and inspected in a day’s ride in carriage, coach, or motor car.” (p. 32) [more...] [$]
