Joseph Sydall

Having lived in Whittington for most of my earlier life I was saddened that I had never heard of Joseph Sydall a well known artist who was born in Old Whittington at Church Street in 1864.  Mary Swanwick, from the well known Swanwick family, spotted his talents and under her patronage he went on to study at Art School.
I will look further into the history of Joseph Sydall and hopefully be able to find some copies of his drawings or sketches to put on the website.
