Tudor Street, Exeter

Description
Hugh McKenzie’s watercolour drawings record the changing face of London during a period of immense architectural upheaval. His knowledge of architecture—by all accounts formidable—was born not of dry historical study but came from his years of experience working with the fire service, which he did throughout the war years and for some time beyond. He annually made a trip to Devon in order to take in and depict the Devonshire landscape.
