This morning I saw a very  interesting piece on the BBC news regarding an upcoming exhibition of the East London Group . They were talking about Albert Turpin, with that I googled it and found the whole concept of this group incredible and am definitely going to visit. Now I don't know about you but once you google one thing it leads you to others and out of the page jumped Walter and Harold Steggles and their many paintings ,one of which is above, which they painted when they were members of the group. The reason I'm writing this is that when I was a youngster, having been born and bred on Canvey one of our very dear neighbours were Mr and Mrs Steggles. What Im interested in is to find out if they had any connection to the Steggle brothers as we know that they painted a few pictures of Canvey and other local scenes.

You should have gone to the exhibition in Southend Barbara. I met some of the family and had a very good narrated tour of the exhibition.

Sadly I hadn't even heard about them before this weekend Janet, I'd have been there like a shot if I'd known about it. Still I'm definitely going to go to the one in London as I really like the whole ethos of the group. Keeping my fingers crossed that someone of there may have answers about my neighbours !
