Vintage fishing print "A Likely Spot" by Cecil Aldin.

Vintage fishing print "A Likely Spot" by Cecil Aldin.


An original chromolithograph print depicting the parson and boy who featured in many of Aldin's prints indulging in a little fishing, a similar but smaller image appears in the book of Aldin's called 'A Sporting Garland' (published in 1902 by Sands & Co). The book was in 3 sections, one each on fox-hunting, shooting and fishing. Each section had its own main illustration that was separately published as a large chromolithograph print. The fishing was titled "A Likely Spot" and as with most of Aldin's pictures in this genre there are touches of humour, frogs are seen heading for the water, a cat is peering from the long grass and a notice can be seen prohibiting fishing.

Image size: 24 inches wide by 12 inches high.
