Connolly Harold

Year working: 1893 - 1973

I recently wrote an article in The Automobile (February 2008) on Harold Connolly see below. (It is reproduced courtesy of The Automobile). Since writing the article I have had chance to read the book ‘Oxford to Abingdon’ in which many Connolly advertisements are reproduced, particularly the black and white press illustrations. Some of his pencil line work in these advertisements is very bold and striking, not in a style that I would normally associate with Connolly
