When Carol Jones spotted a picture of Hampden Park Lake in a recent edition of the Eastbourne Gazette her first thoughts were of a picture her father had bought in the 1950s and hung at their home.

“When we were young our mum and dad would take us to Hampden Park to play and there were often painters with their easels capturing the wonderful scenery.

“I think my dad must have bought it and hung it on the wall and it has been passed down the family.

“When I saw the recent photograph in the Gazette I compared it and there were so many similarities.”

The photograph highlighted in the Gazette was taken by 71-year-old Arthur Rudkins who told the paper he had been taking pictures since he was 11 and was still enjoying the hobby.
