The town you grew up in, School, Ann Hyde

My Secondary school

I've taken this sketch from Google's Street View.
The building is basically the same as when I was there, 
back in the mid 60's.  The only addition is the porch on the
front of the building.  The only thing I can see that has been removed
are some buildings to the right, which is now a car park.

  1. How fun and thanks for the idea. My first school has been turned down, but all three next ones are still there!!!!!!!!!! Yours made a lovely painting!

    1. Thanks Lynn, what a pity your first school is gone. I need to find a picture of my Primary (first) school to sketch now. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Ann your recent sketches from your town are great!!! It seems that you are alone in keeping this going right I promise when I finish typing this I am going to sketch something for this theme. Off I go....

    1. Hi Joan....yes, I was beginning to feel lonely, lol....Hope my sketches have inspired you :-)
