Jones, Pelham (c.1890-c.1950)

Pelham Jones was an accomplished marine artist of the 1930's. The vessels in his watercolours are painted with great care and detail exemplifying the naturalistic style which was so popular at the time. He illustrated a book by Frank C Bowen, [who wrote A Hundred Years of Towing, the Watkins history, in 1933], entitled Sailing Ships of the London River, which was published in 1930.
