Not much has been written about this competent regional taxidermist. Their premises were located at 44-46 Albion Street, Leeds. The cases however are well executed with bright distinctive groundwork and attention to detail Typically three sided glass cases were constructed with gilt edged beading and a "washed" blue fading to yellow backgrounds, so typical of taxidermy of the period. The cases suffered less than most with moth damage, perhaps a testimony to the arsenic powders / salts that were common of the time. The subject matter we have seen appears to be solely birds currently although cased foxes, and badgers are also known to exist. From the cases we have observed Lawrence appears to be one of the more skilled taxidermists operation in Yorkshire. We would complare this work to the fine taxidermy produced by AS Hutchinson of Derby, perhaps the finest taxidermist in this region. Outlined below however are examples of this persons work. This page shall be added to when we obtain more images to develop our knowledge of this artist.
