Vercoe's Building, Clyde Central Otago
Oil on canvas
Size: 600 x 900mm
The weathered signage on the building caught my eye. Apparently in the heyday of the gold prospecting in the 19th century the population of Clyde boomed and with it the need for an undertaker. So the local builder took the opportunity as a sideline to his building business.
