This is the end of Solomon Grundy.
This nursery rhyme was first published in Victorian England. It was the starting point for the ‘Vessels (of Remembrance)’ series. It made me wonder who ‘Solomon Grundy’ was and what was left behind now he was gone.
For this piece I used the original documents from my family and changed the names.
