Starkey, H.J.Last Raid New Road

Last Raid New Road
Pencil drawing by H.J. Starkey

This chalk sketch is part of a set of drawings made by Starkey of various scenes from the area local to Willenhall, where the artist lived and worked. This sketch stands out, due to its dramatic character, with fire flaring up in the middle of the picture. The title and date indicate the subject as an air raid taking place during the Second World War. A man can be seen going up a ladder that is propped against the building on the right hand side.
