Circa 1930s Naive Hunting Scenes. Top: Painting A. Bottom: Painting B.
These naively painted hunting scenes are located on adjacent walls in a small storage room in the middle of the ground floor. It is understood that the room was used as a cocktail bar during the WWI by the army based at the nearby Jurby camp, and perhaps the paintings were carried out in lieu of monies owed for drinks and it is rumoured there is a connection with the Nicholson family of artists.
