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 artist died more than 70 years ago, so these illustrations are out of copyright.
