The Architecture Centre is pleased to present the first ever exhibition of Garth England’s drawings, kindly on loan from Bristol Archives. Garth England was born in 1935 and lived most of his life in South Bristol, working as a paperboy, milkman and on the railways. His remarkable collection of drawings – made with pencil, crayon and with a ruler – were mainly drawn from memory during his later years in a residential home and were created on whatever paper was to hand – often the backs of envelopes, bank notes and letters.
