The view above is of Bolt Head near Salcombe, a water colour by Sutton Palmer, which dates from about 1928.
The demand for Books, Guides, picture postcards and framed views reached a peak between the wars of the last century that not even the Widgery family could satisfy and soon, other artists were earning a very good living supplying this new market.
Harold Sutton Palmer was born in Plymouth in 1854 and died 8 May 1933. He is generally described as an illustrator which is not really fair - he painted exclusively in water colour throughout a long career which began when he exhibited at the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition in 1870 at the age of just 16. His fame came from his connection with the the travel books and coloured postcards of the publisher A & C Black (collectors will recognise the name "Salmon postcards")
