Greeting card reproduced from a watercolour by Eric Ravilious. 125 x 175mm with white paper envelope. Recycled and/or FSC approved materials. Published by Orwell Press Art Publishing. "....[in 'Bathing Machines, Aldeburgh] the composition is centred on the parking sign and it's shadow, around which the othe robjects (and the attendant) are carefully arranged so that the eye keeps moving from one to the nextas if around a dial. An important feature of Edwardian seaside cculture, bathing machines enabled people to enterand leave the water unobserved. As a boy Ravilious would have seen them on the beach at Eastbourne, but by the late 1930s, these eccentric tents were a rarity" (Russel, 2015 - 'Ravilious' - published on the occasion of the exhibition Ravilious at Dulwich Picture Gallery)
