Ted Walkey

Ted drew this from memory.
Union Court EC2 City of London. Painted entirely from memory of the place of my first job as an office boy cum errand boy in January 1939. I worked for a stationers which was also the Consulates of Honduras and Nicaragua. The boy with the box bicycle was myself and the man standing near was one of the many Jews who called at the consulate begging for Visas for relatives who wanted to escape from the Nazi regime and the holicaust that was to follow. The city gents used to stop and had a good look at the 'bottle' blond who cleaned the window every morning, both thighs and cleavage were studied according to which part of the window was being cleaned at the time. The lady on the right was the only one who said good morning.
