An Illustration depicting the once existing Hole in The Road in Sheffield City Centre. This once was one of Sheffield's most memorable landmarks. It was filled in with rubble in 1994 but many people still remember the quirks of the underground walkway area where there were shops, buskers, market sellers and a murky fish tank. I used to go in there when I was about eight and would always be on the look out for tat to buy. I seem to remember a lot of hair scrunchies.
This would make a nostalgic gift for those who remember the Hole in the Road and it's always a good conversation starter at my stalls. There is a lot a detail to pick out within the image and it's all there through my research into the iconic landmark. See if you can spot the man with the binoculars in the middle looking out the for the police, whilst his mate sells the dodgy videos. Or the couple smooching in front of the fish tank, which was a regular meeting point for dates. Nice.
This is a full colour print onto 210 gsm, uncoated matte paper with a 3cm around the edge of the image suitable for framing. I have my work printed locally to a professional finish and will post it out to you in a hard backed envelope to ensure no bends or creases.
The total size of the image is 29.5cm x 21cm. If you would like a larger version then do get in touch, I can arrange for an A3 version for the cost of £20 (including postage) to be printed.
I used to go into the Hole in The Road when I was about eight years old. It was looking pretty shabby at that point but I always liked to see what people were selling. Going into the Hole in The Road usually meant a day out which seemed exciting at the time! I loved researching how it used to look, the quirky facts and enjoyed the challenge of getting the composition right.
