ERNEST BLENKINSOP - A rock in defense for The OWLS.

Ernest 'Blenky' Blenkinsop was a stalwart of the Owls defence for over a decade during the 1920's and 30's. Here in the Dream Scene I have him handing a well earned beer to another club champ who covered perhaps even more ground than him.

Often I have to cobble together two or three images to construct one figure, but sometimes the perfect photo comes along which needs minimal adjustment.

This was the case with Ernest. I found a great photo of him shaking hands at the start of an International game. It only needed a repositioning of the arm and a tilt of the head and he was now passing a beer to a team mate rather than shaking hands with a rival... and some stripes of course!!
