ABOUT THE ARTIST:
I*A* MOYLES BWS was a member of the Birmingham Watercolour Society which was formed in 1907 and still exists I think, although I have not received a reply to my request for information about the artist.
It would appear that the artist was active between the two World Wars.
TITLE: The Bath House, Aberdyfi – sigtned lower left
Painting: 235 x 344
Frame / Mount: Unframed and Unmounted
There are three annotations verso, one states:
1. To Mary with every good wish from S. Herbert Easter 1929
2. Aberdovey by the Dovey, N. Wales 5/6 – this one is indistinct a further note is struck
through and difficult to read but looks like – Lined paper
3. A much later note reads ABERDOVEY BY THE RIVER DOVEY NORTH WALES
Every good painting should have a story to go with it, something to stimulate the imagination.
This is an interesting view of the River Dyfi (Dovey) Estuary with what is now the Aberdovey Institute in the foreground.
The building used to be the bath house where sailors could have a bath and get their laundry done.
The building has been extended since the time of this view.
Aberdovey was, until recently a Port with navigation marks administered by Trinity House.
The last Pilot, Mr Benbow was also Harbour Master.
The port was mainly concerned with the shipping of slate from the quarry at Aberllefenni near Corris where one tunnel extends over a mile into the mountain.
