Surreal study, 1952. Creator: Shirley Markham Featured Image

Surreal study, 1952. Creator: Shirley Markham

Surreal study, 1952. Illustration for a poem by TS Eliot. Shirley Markham (1931-1999) studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Central School of Art in London from 1950-1952. The writer, artist, poet, and illustrator Mervyn Peake (1911-1968) was one of her tutors, and her style of drawing was also influenced by other British illustrators such as Edward Ardizzone, Quentin Blake and Edward Bawden. Markham spent time in the Dolomite Mountains in Italy, and also visited Rome, sketching classical buildings. After graduating from Central, she worked as a graphic designer, producing book illustrations, cartoons for comics, menus and programmes. She gave up her promising career however when she got married in 1957. Middle-class women at that time were expected to devote their energies to bringing up children and running the home, and despite her obvious talent, she lacked the confidence to return to illustration. Her portfolio remained in the family attic for many years, but now her work is published here for the first time

Sloppy Joes Bar, Havana, Cuba, 1951

Sloppy Joe's Bar, Havana, Cuba, 1951. The world famous Sloppy Joe's welcomed tourists for over four decades, and offered over 80 cocktails in addition to the bar's own brand of 12 year old rum. During the 1940s and 1950s it was popular with American celebrities as well as tourists. The Cuban Revolution of 1959 saw the demise of the bar as the majority of their clientele was American. A fire in the 60s closed the bar for good. It reopened in 2013. Advertising on the back of the postcard says SLOPPY JOE'S BAR first port of call, out where the wet begins and HONESTY IS OUR POLICY, Don't fail to meet your friends at SLOPPY JOE'S. Also lists Famous Cocktails, Delicious Sandwiches, The best brands of Cigars, Fresh Liquors Candies
