I know this thread is old but;

I'd like to know if the painting "Old Luton" painted by Alfred Peachey in 1964 is still in the Council's posession. It used to hang in the Civic Suite when I worked at the Civic Centre 1985-90.
This painting is held at the the Guildhall Museum, Rochester. See http://www.bbc.co.uk/arts/yourpaintings/paintings/old-luton-chatham-kent-77140

The Your Paintings website http://www.bbc.co.uk/arts/yourpaintings/ is a good place to look if you are trying to find oil paintings held by councils and other institutions.

I chanced upon them whilst dropping off some paperwork to the legal dept.

The corridor is too narrow to stand back and get a good look, but I took some photos anyway...
Nostalgia's not what it used to be

No worries...it will be a good excuse to go for a stroll around the place!

It doesn't ring any bells, I must say, but I'll go and have a look.  Most pictures seem to be in the corridors and meeting rooms but if it's in Someone Important's office we may be out of luck.

Hi Merry! :)

Thank you for offering to have a look for me.
 
It is panorama painting showing the old Henry Street and surrounding areas in Luton. If my memory serves me correctly it  shows a lady hanging out her washing in the foreground of the painting. Once you see it, you can't mistake it!

ps. Fellow KHF member Karlostg also knows of the painting.

If you could describe it I can go and have a look around Gun Wharf for it.  There are quite a few pictures around the place.

They most certainly are...I walk past them most days and enjoy them very much.

Sadly they are in a staff-only corridor, but there's not enough wall space in the public areas to display them.

Where are these now? 3 postcards showing the mural that was at the Civic Centre in Strood.  Guess they went with the demolition.!
