They are excellent and now also historically valuable drawings warringtonrhino (Ken on 2 of the drawings) :).

Going off topic I've always wished I could draw but I have no artistic ability at all. I still remember in a school report of mine the art teacher stating "(my name omitted) tries very hard at what is, for him, a difficult subject". My hand writing is also terrible but at least thanks to spellcheckers my otherwise poor spelling ability is hidden! ;).

I think your photography puts the lie to that and for the avoidance of doubt that is a complement and not casting aspersions at your truthfulness ;)

1967 Leodis photo shows a row of 5 banks at the old centre

The Yorkshire Bank closed their branch in the new centre a few months ago,no more face to face banking

From memory the people in the bowling alley picture are Dave F, Steve H, Stan L and Chris Y.
I did others with names on the back which has helped me put names to the people in the sketch
I confess I would never be employed to do the courtroom visualizations.
In my early years I always carried pens and paper wherever I went, there's a suitcase in the loft which is full of my old sketchpads.
The sketch you refer to was a Foxwood School 6th year night out, Bowling, Coke and Burgers, and home for 10pm!!
