Provenance: Mary Adshead, thence by descent.

This painting – which was acquired by Mary Adshead and has remained with her family until the present day – portrays a combination of 18th century architecture and later workers’ terraced houses, characteristic of many Welsh border towns.
Mary Adshead was at the Slade (1921-24) several years before Drusilla Way though
she might have acquired this 1928 composition when she was in London working on her mural The Four Continents for No. 2 Bedford Square. Way attended the Slade from 1925 to 1929.  Many of her London period compositions were based on the area in which she lived around Raynes Park.
