A London Nocturne

Edward John BURROW (Wellington, 1869 - Cheltenham, 1935)

Biography



Originally trained as a chemist and pharmacist, Edward John Burrow was born in Somerset and studied at Cheltenham College, later settling in the spa town. Active as a topographical etcher and draughtsman, he established a cooperative publishing business in Cheltenham in 1900, through which he wrote and published several books of local interest, such as The Ancient Entrenchments and Camps of Gloucestershire, first published in 1919, and Around and About Cheltenham, published in 1921. Many of Burrow’s etchings are commissioned views of public schools and colleges such as Marlborough, Rugby, Eton and Haileybury.
