Metropolitan Water Board Works by Cyril Mann


We popped along to the Vestry House Museum last weekend to see the Walthamstow High Street exhibition - extended until 12 May and worth a visit.  We particularly liked the photographs of Chris Dransfield and Jon Stephenson that capture the diversity and vibrancy of the market today.

Whilst there, we were really also pleased to see Cyril Mann's painting of Lea Bridge Waterworks on display (the copy of it above doesn't really do it justice). There's a really interesting video about Cyril's life and work on the Lea Bridge heritage website: the view from the bridge. Do check it out.
