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.

Guy’s Cliffe, Warwick

“The Coventry road to Guy’s Cliffe is a royal and a literary road. Kings, queens, princes, poets, painters and authors have trodden it; also that luckless King’s favourite, Piers Gaveston, whose comely head fell from his shoulders upon Blacklow Hill, a few yards from the Cliffe, on 27th June, 1312, by order of that grim Earl of Warwick whom he in [...] [more...] [$]
