Cartoon by Wally Verrell n.d.

I photographed this cartoon at the studio of Kevin Little in Arncliffe, Sydney shortly before he packed up 100 years of glass and stuff to ‘retire’ to the country.

Wally Verrell worked at PO Barnard in Sydney, and quietly taught Kevin by example. His cartoons are exemplary, however, he is very rarely mentioned despite his obvious abilities, and the location of windows he had a hand in remain largely unknown.

Has anyone seen a window with these distinctive children in it? They are believed to be modelled on Wally’s family.

If you have any information on Wally or his windows, please add it to the comments.
