A beautiful gouache by an artist well known for Town scenes (usually pubs to pay the landlords bill) signed bottom right “Fred” Austin. He worked in Norwich, Derby and Reading. Examples of his work are in a number of Public collections. It has an arched top and dates to about 1870. There is a little oxidation in the sky but is otherwise in very good condition.
