JOHN BESWICK LOWRY MARKET SCENE CERAMIC ART VASE PARASTONE

John Beswick (now owned by Dartington Crystal) ceramic
art vases ~ Lowry's Market Scene

Laurence Stephen Lowry was born 1 November 1887 in Barrett Street, Stretford.
His father, Robert, worked as a clerk in an estate agent’s office.
His mother, Elizabeth, was a talented pianist.
By 1898 the family were living in Victoria Park, a leafy suburb in south Manchester, but in 1909 financial difficulties necessitated a move to Pendlebury, an industrial area between Manchester and Bolton.
Lowry’s mother hated it, and so did Lowry, but, ‘After a year I got used to it.
Within a few years I began to be interested and at length I became obsessed by it.’

After leaving school Lowry took a job as a clerk with a Manchester firm of chartered accountants, Thomas Aldred and Son.
In 1910, after being made redundant from a second job, he became rent collector and clerk for the Pall Mall Property Company and stayed there until his retirement in 1952
