Following extensive refurbishment the Dreamland Cinema building has been returned to its former glory, complete with neon signs and lighting and artist Andy Tuohy has been inspired to create this image of the building at night to extend his Thanet series.
Built in 1819 to house a twelve bell peel made at the Whitechapel Bell Foundry which was too big for the local church, Waterloo Tower in the grounds of Quex Park in Birchington-on-Sea commemorates Wellington’s men. Designer and illustrator Andy Tuohy perfectly captures the history of the tower in a new artwork available from Lombard Street Gallery, with animals from the dioramas making an appearance in the grounds.
Each image is available in an edition of 100, signed and stamped by the artist at £175 unframed and £255 framed for the Dreamland Cinema, Margate image and £160 unframed, £240 framed for the others.
