    Picked up from a CS I think some years ago so I decided yesterday to see what I could find out about the artist and painting. There wasn’t much, it didn’t help that there was another Manchester artist named Tom Brown but he was born in 1933 so much later than 1914 when this was painted. Sorry some pics are coming out sideways, an iPad mystery.
    I found a 1925 Royal Cambrian art catalogue which is too big to post which gave his address as Mosley Street which was where he along with another artist exhibited with LS Lowry. It was Lowrys first.

    Thanks Lucille, I was interested to know. I doubt I paid more than £3 for mine. Someone bothered to reframe it and I like it. I wondered if he or the other exhibitor sold anything when Lowry didn’t.

    I like it too! Much better than the one in the link. Has a lovely look to it.

    Lots of Lowry fakes out there as they are easy to fake - as is the provenance! Buyers like me are extremely skeptical of Lowry's appearing here and there at random sales. So unsold is often the case with Lowry wannabes/lookalikes/fakes or even genuine pieces..
