> Langfords Estate Agency building illustration
16 Bank Street
Our building has an interesting history, some of the businesses that have resided here are Solicitors, Publishers and Estate Agents!
It seems that we’re in good company, during 1911, our builing housed ‘Edmund Beck & Sons’. Edmunds son, Henry went on to be an Estate Agent to H.R.H. The Prince of Wales, Sandringham before going off to fight in World War I where he and his infantry went missing, presumed dead. You can find his name listed on the Helles Memorial, Turkey
Project: Christmas Card Illustrator
Client: Langfords Estate Agency
About: I met Ruth again after renting a property from her estate agency years ago and her enthusiasm and care for her business is quite infectious. Together we came up with a Christmas concept of doing an illustration and a bit of a history hunt of the building they work out of. We wrote the results of our search on the back of the card.
