"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Tom Pudding Hoist

No 5 Compartment Boat Hoist - Goole
10 colour reduction linocut
290mm x 190mm
Edition of 9.

Finally finished the print of the old boat hoist at Goole docks. This was used for emptying coal barges (the Tom Puddings of the title, think a boat shaped floating skip) into bigger sea going freighters.
