Linocut Prints of Local Landmarks

Made by Bottesford school children in the 1930s.

By Neil Fortey

This set of prints has been scanned from copies belonging to Mike Saunders of linoprints dating from the 1930s. These were made by Bottesford school children. We are unsure who actually made them or exactly when, or indeed the whereabouts of the original linocuts if they still exist, and would be grateful for any further information on them. Dorothy Beedham recalls that her brothers were among the makers, but there must have been others, and one or more teachers that oversaw their work. The results are beautiful and vivid record of those far off days.
