Philip D. Hawkins - Newton Heath Morning - Royal Scot & Jinty
Railway Steam Train Birthday Cards - Newton Heath Shed
In a scene that evokes many memories of a by-gone era a Royal Scot and ‘Jinty’ share Newton Heath shed awaiting further duties. By 1964, the rough period of the painting, locomotive maintenance was slipping but the romance of steam was still very much alive.
A railway birthday and greeting card by Philip D. Hawkins, Newton Heath Morning is a perfect example of the artist’s ability to turn the clock back.
