Bassett-Lowke in Eric Ravilious’ High Street

10 June 2004Written by ATG Reporter

IN a general sale held by Bloomsbury Auctions on May 13, a copy of J.M. Richards’ High Street of 1938 that was signed on the front free endpaper by W.J. Bassett-Lowke, the proprietor of one of the shops illustrated in the work’s coloured litho illustrations by Eric Ravilious, was sold for £1150.

The name Bassett-Lowke will, of course, need no introduction to toy train or model railway enthusiasts.
