Abstract

This illustration of the School of Agriculture at Lincoln was obviously sent to Emma as a way for her to know the environment in which Mellor was living. His sense of humour and feeling for the place is evident with red pen scrawls: ‘room in which staff meet for mutual improvement & admiration’, ‘letter rack where I always find your letters’, and the more cynical: ‘MY PRISON’. Mellor left Lincoln in June 1899 and by July, the married couple were travelling to England, where Mellor started his career at Owens College, Manchester.
