Since my Dad’s moved in with his mom (my grandmother) he’s been reorganizing her Kent farmhouse, which involved bringing a few older bits of art to the fore. Here is an image of one of my late Grandfather’s factories – a man after whom I appear to have been named (John Grist). I’m not entirely sure what it made. It does look impressive though.
I’d like to see a photograph of the actual factory it represents, but perhaps they don’t exist anywhere. Dad?
My grandfather was in industry (maybe oil?) and also worked on the bomb squad in World War 2. He loved race horses and owned several. For a while he had a yacht, and we went out on it once as little kids.
