L.S. Lowry (1887-1976) gained wide public recognition for his paintings of everyday life in the industrial districts around Salford in Manchester. Working full-time as a rent collector, his day job allowed him to witness the ‘everyday’ lives of people living in the city.

Lowry’s painting ‘Going to the Match’ is a personal favourite, as it reminds me of going to watch my local club on a Saturday afternoon when I was a kid in the 1970’s.
