Ganymed Lithographs
These are original lithographs drawn for the purpose, and not existing in any other form.
They are published in limited editions of 75. Each copy is numbered and has been signed by the artist.
All lithographs are printed in black with a tint background.
Due to the lenghty 'hands-on' process and the fact that no two lithographs are identical, they are widely regarded as 'original' prints.

The landscape has changed somewhat since Lowry made this lithograph,
The hills and old houses have made way for roads and new modern domestic and commercial buildings;
the Viaduct however still remains.
