'Arthur's cafe, Dalston' is from a series of paintings depicting fast disappearing old London shops. Featured recently in The Guardian: 'Arthur’s exterior is as plain as his “plain English food”: khaki tiles and orange signage, the legend “Father, son and grandson Est. 1935” on the awning. Born on Christmas Day 1927, Arthur Woodham (the “son”) has been here since 1948. He may be hurtling towards 90, but he still works the floor of his cafe, with wife Eileen downstairs overseeing the food.'
Since writing the above and since painting it, Arthur's Cafe closed for good in early 2018 after the death of Arthur. It was in his will that the business closed upon his death.
