Watercolour Scene - 1890

Much Hadham High Street by unknown artist

This watercolour sketch was purchased from ebay for £5.00. It had been rudely torn from its mount with the artist’s name and date scribbled on the rear in biro. Sadly only the date is legible. We may never know the name of the artist of this fine little painting.

It does however, adorn the cover of our new book Much Hadham A to Z of Local History. During Covid lockdown the museum created daily social media posts which traced Hadham’s history. We have expanded this into a book to help us raise both funds and awareness of our great local history collections.
