Branch Art Gallery
Welcome to our art pages. In this index, there is a mixture of art work from various artists. The top one shows the remarkeable detail of the Branch Archives book cover. The coloured prints below it were recently auctioned while the graphics below them link to stories in the Branch Library. As before, click on the pictures to see the full size picture.

Tapestry of a Bristol 'Brigand' of No. 8 Squadron in 1951 flying over the Wadi Hadhramaut in what was then the Eastern Aden Protectorate (now part of the Yemen). Sorry; the submitted picture did not translate well to enlargement hence no link to an enlarged image in this case.
