    Do you know the name of an etcher or engraver with the initials PR? I have an engraving entitled ‘Westminster 1924’ – pedestrians & vehicles crossing a bridge with Big Ben in the background.

    • Hi Fran,
      It is probably Percy Robertson- He did an etching with the same title that matches your description. Percy Robertson was born in Bellagio, Italy and studied at Charterhouse school in Surrey. He was a talented watercolor and landscape painter, and a skilled etcher. He was an elected member of the Royal Society of Etchers, and exhibited through England, including the Royal Academy.

        Thanks very much for that info. I will print it off & attach it to the back of the picture that was my aunt’s & I chose it from her estate when she died. It is extremely atmospheric and my husband & I love it.
