The Halls of the Livery Companies of the City of London

Carpenters' HallFirst printed in 1981, the book is based around the magnificent drawings produced by Howard Penton in 1904. Howard produced these drawings at the age of 22 and they amongst others, including one showing the first launch of a British Submarine, were widely acclaimed and published. Howard, as a notable marine and landscape painter, exhibited at the Royal Academy, the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours and the Royal Society of Marine Artists. He was a lifelong member of both the Langham Club and The Wapping Group of Artists and regarded the river from the pool downstream as his spiritual home. The detail of the pencil drawings has to be seen to be believed. Whilst it records the Livery Halls as they existed in 1904, many still remain or have been rebuilt, very much in the same style. This book is the only known historical record of those halls.

It is an ideal coffee table book and in addition, at no cost, if you wish, a personal dedication page including Coats of Arms etc. can be inserted - an ideal present to a fellow Liveryman.

Available for the inclusive price of £45 to cover postage and packing.

All proceeds from the sale go to charity.

Copies can be purchased at the Guildhall Book Shop, Library Book Shop and Museum of London Book Shop.
