Street Fight by George Ranstead Featured Print

Street Fight by George Ranstead

Drawing of two men engaged in a punch up in the street, much to the horror of a lady watching from a doorway (possibly the cause of the fight) accompanied by a WWI-themed cpation 'Last night we raided enemy territory and returned with few casualties'. The sketch on a postcard is by George Ranstead, an amateur artist of the Great War who served in the Army Pay Corps. Ranstead was one of many soldiers of WWI who took up drawing as a hobby. His subjects range from wartime humour to pictures of pretty girls and are clearly influenced by images in the illustrated magazines of the period.
circa 1916
