Name/TitleBridge Street during the storm of 27th July 1900: watercolour
About this objectWatercolour, Bridge Street during the storm of 27th July 1900. A view looking north-west towards the bridge, showing the flooding of Bridge Street, with Lucas’s brewery in the left distance and 8-9A in the right foreground. Muted colours suggest that this was either an early morning or evening view.
This painting appears to be otherwise unknown and does not appear in Comstock’s catalogue of Griggs’s work. Signed F L B Griggs, as are other works of similar date; the B stands for Bailey, the maiden name of his mother, whose death earlier in the year affected him greatly.
