Norman Cornish – Behind the Scenes page 54

Dogs with their owners in many different settings were part of the cultural landscape of Spennymoor for much of the twentieth century. Some were racing dogs, Whippets and Greyhounds, usually appearing in Bar Scenes, but as here, not always.

The fascination with the subject, the shapes of the man, his clothing, the dog and the lead, attracted Cornish for obvious reasons. Norman’s quote ‘the people make the shapes I am just the medium’ appears on the Blue Plaque at 67 Whitworth Terrace.
