Private lodgings by W.A. Sutton

Private lodgings by W.A. Sutton

Private Lodgings is a portrait of a lost Christchurch building that dates most probably from the 1860s.

When Bill Sutton painted it in 1954, it was an increasingly decrepit boarding house, on the corner of Manchester and Southwark streets, just out of the central city - opposite the much more famous Coker's Hotel.
