    • The Story

      Part of my William Dyce collection.

      The Lodge in the mid 19th century, was the entrance to Manor Park in Streatham. A large treelined, public garden. 

      This Italianate-style tower was a great 70ft in height and offered the people, fantastic  views towards Harrow and Highgate. Quite impressive really.

      I decided to create this image in pink to represent those almost surreal pink skies of Streatham. William Dyce Mews now sits to the left of this entrance on Mitcham Lane. His famously kown water fountain can also be seen from here- just to the left of this painting on what is now Streatham Green.  I couldnt help but include Mr Dyce himself, on a stroll with two of his children.  As My Dyce spent a good portion of his time in this area, I believe he would have frequented this beutiful park before him. 

      The site is now the Manor Arms pub on Mitcham Lane SW16.
