Your site most amusing [Cheers, boy!]. Don't get to St. Ives these days. Been on missionary work in England. Odd place run by someone called Blair [That's President Blair to you!]. Have heard about The Tate. Was born in The Meadow 1923. Often saw Alfred Wallis, little man, baggy trousers, jersey. Passed his little place on the way to Island School, liked his pictures displayed in the window. He painted just like us five year olds. The old boy was bad tempered though, boxed my ears once.

Cheers for the message of cheer. Old Alf seems to have certainly ensured his
place in local folklore which makes it even more mystifying as to why the Tate
St. Ives so roundly ignores him.
