LAWN BOWLERS (in Stanley Park, Vancouver)
Original Limited Edition Block Print issued August 2004
Image size 8" high by 10" wide (200 mm by 250 mm)
Many years ago my grandfather was Assistant Greenskeeper at the Lawn Bowling
Club in Stanley Park. I visited him there a number of times, and always enjoyed
the quiet and civilized manner of the game. Recently I was bicycling by the greens
and noticed that a large number of games were in play. On an
impulse I went and watched them for a while. It turned out to be a playdown leading up
to the B.C. Championship, and the players were all concentrating on their games.
