Charles C Smith


We've got a few drawings and paintings by Charles C Smith and on the back of some of them is this information about the artist. There are also little stickers showing his address as Mansfield Crescent, Denton.
'Tame Valley and Gee Cross Mill'
'Coombes Rocks'
'Hyde Town Hall'
No title on this picture, but I don't think it needs one
There's also no title on this picture, but it's in the Werneth Low Country Park

Thank you, Dave, for these. They're amazing. I'll photograph my two of Mr Smith's paintings and send them. I think your last picture is of the kissing gate by the Peace Garden.
