Post-War Blues in the Land of Green Ginger

I grew up with, and aged alongside, 1960s post-war buildings. For me they evoke a span of half a life time, distant memories of a lost Yorkshire childhood, wide windows of hope and naive modernity. Light blue paneling and metal framed windows, the scent of pipe smoke, Dettol and the acridness of diesel, of overly sweet Orangeade and rocket shaped lollies. And decades pass. I like this building in Hull, now home to Kardomah94. It is a sturdy, a survivor, it reminds me of when I was young. I painted it. It now hangs in the Kardomah94, where it belongs. It is now available as a print  http://www.andrewreidwildman.co.uk/ourshop/prod_4267632-Kardomah94.html Prices include UK p&p and they are £6 each.
