Know-How: Specials on Liverpool Hessy's

From Dara on 19th December 2004:

"I was wondering if anyone online is familiar with Hazle’s Synagogue piece? It’s listed as a Limited Painting on a website that I found when exploring the Yahoo Hazle site."

From Marilyn on 20th December 2004:

The Synagogue is a Limited Painting of 30 sold by John English Gifts in London at £85. Called East London Synagogue, it is painted in a very pale blue, says ‘All Faiths Welcome’ and has a Star of David above the door. The main window has a half-curtain, with a candelabra and a man with a large dark hat visible above this.

It is painted on the retired Hessy’s Music Shop from Liverpool - where the Beatles first bought their instruments. When a building is retired from the standard range it is still sometimes used for specials. I mentioned to Hazle that none had been done on Hessy’s although it has a good-sized main window, whereupon painter Iona Driver got to work. The first, Mountaineering, was a highly decorated LP10 for Harvey Weston in October 2004.

From Marilyn on 7th December 2006:

The Irish Centre LP30 was issued in Spring 2005. Prototypes were done for a Public Library and a Mosque but the Limited Paintings were never issued.

From Marilyn on 21st May 2011:

In 2008 a new Synagogue was brought out on the Northampton (Royal Theatre) building.
