Our picture of the month is a drawing by William Harold Hutchings (1885-1962) from the sketchbooks and scrapbooks donated to Northwich Library and now held at the Cheshire Record Office. Hutchings, born in Liverpool, trained at the Liverpool School of Art but spent most of his life in Northwich working for Brunner Mond (later ICI). He served in the Royal Army Medical Corps 1916-1918 sketching and painting whenever the opportunity arose. His images, often vibrant with a spontaneous quality, depict everyday life on the front line - comic, prosaic and tragic.
