As They Really Were gives us a unique collection of drawings of ordinary people going about their business in the small town of Alnwick in the 1830’s and their stories. Amazing characters like Luke Skelley, professional hole-stopper pictured below. The skill of te artist and the quality of the reproduction gives us a clear view of their character. Each individual is brought back to life with infinite care, and this book is an invaluable pre-cursor to abilities of photography which followed soon after.

“Rather than produce “types” or caricatures Percy Forster’s drawings observe each individual with care”

Sandy Nairne Director, National Portrait Gallery
