You know about “The Shed” but I don’t think I have told you about “The Other Shed”. Yes, my father not only had a huge shed for his carpentry, his art and later in life for his hoarding but there is another smaller one. This little shed was actually my first home. My mum, dad and I lived there while he built our house, before my sister and brother were born. Apparently I was very good at making things from tins of flower and sugar etc, that I found in the big green cupboard. I still remember all the locks that were eventually added – for my benefit, no doubt.
This shed later housed a “lavatory” as they were once called, a laundry and a workshop. I remember many hours “helping Dad” in that little workshop. I have rescued the vice that held my constructions – maybe I will photograph it one day.
In later years the workshop section became another place of storage – from art materials, to wood – you name it. I even found my final year high school and first year art school drawings, painting and even an old plaster sculpture.
Here are a few pics of this little old shed. The collage below shows the door, a wall with an old notice still attached, some stacks of wood which reminded me of Braque paintings and finally two images of the roof. We were hoping to find a treasure in the roof….but just dust and paper.
