Shed champion - Giles

Cartoonist Carl Giles was known simply as Giles and more particularly for his annual collections of cartoons from the Daily Express. which were a must in many homes at Christmas time. As Shedblog points out, he was at his best when depicting family life which often included some aspect of sheds. Here is the cover of the 31st series annual.

    Hi Alex. Giles has had a significant influence on me I think. This cover is such a true-to-life home workshop, it's everything I aspire to. You know, Giles was a shed-worker too. I'm sure I have a picture of his sheds somewhere, I'll see if I can't dig it out.
