11. London Pairs Patchwork – Paddington Station, 1937

“In Britain, a cup of tea is the answer to every problem.
Fallen off your bicycle? Nice cup of tea.
Your house has been destroyed by a meteorite? Nice cup of tea and a biscuit.
Your entire family has been eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex that has travelled through a space/time portal? Nice cup of tea and a piece of cake. Possibly a savoury option would be welcome here too, for example a Scotch egg or a sausage roll.” David Walliams, Mr. Stink.

This square was cut from a National Railway Museum Diary given to my mam, then given to me unused. Published by Frances Lincoln Limited, 2014. It shows a passenger at a refreshment trolley, Paddington Station, 1937.

This is the eleventh square of my London Pairs Patchwork. It is a patchwork of papers gleaned from the pavements (mostly) of the city in which I live. There are sixteen squares making up the whole piece. You can see it here.

All of my work is numbered. This piece is 795.

The patchwork is now in my shop.
