Fred Yates, Cheadle Hulme

Fred Yates (1922 - 2008) Cheadle Hulme


Oil on board, signed lower right.


Provenance: Gift of the artist, 1991

Cheadle Hulme is a suburb of the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport in Greater Manchester.  The subject matter, which possibly depicts a working men's club, dates this work to the early years of Yates's career.  


Another possibility is that this work represents Cheadle Hulme Railway Station.  Fred Yates and his twin brother Arthur were evidently born in the Manchester suburb of Urmston. However, it is believed that they attended school in another suburb, Cheadle Hulme. If so, they are likely to have commuted by train. Perhaps the two near identical figures in the foreground of the work are a recollection by the artist of his twin brother and himself while waiting for a train. Arthur, the twin, was killed in World War II.
