Marie Hartley Draws Whitby
I have been cataloguing a collection of books on Yorkshire this afternoon and a large number of them are illustrated by Marie Hartley. The books are dating from the late 40s through to the early 1960s and I have been admiring the black and white line illustrations. When I picked up this books, The Wonders of Yorkshire (J. M. Dent, London, 1959) I was thrilled with this colour frontispiece of Whitby. Given that I was only in Whitby a little while ago with my best friend, I thought that gave me licence to post it here!
