[Edna’s husband John Bold and the painter L.S. Lowry were friends since both attended Manchester School of Art, as did Emmanuel Levy. Members of the Sandon Club were professional writers, musicians and painters. The Goose Feast was held in honour of the founder of the Sandon Club, the painter Henry Carr].

 

Whether Nicholas [Horsfall, assistant director to the Arts Council in the North] discriminated or merely pulled the names out of a hat, we had no way of knowing, but in December of ’48 Emmanuel Levy, his wife Ursula, Nicholas, Lowry, John and I found ourselves travelling to Liverpool through the green and saffron landscape of a very cold day. We were to attend an exhibition of paintings at the Sandon Club in the afternoon and the Goose Feast in the evening. 

 

[The party leave the event early and miss the exhibition, following Lowry, who is bored, to a café. Later, separated from his friends, Lowry misses the train home]

 

Late, too late for Lowry, whose disappearance had not registered, we departed for Manchester, well after midnight. Nicholas planned parties, pageants and bachanalias [sic], Ursula sang Leider [sic] in her native tongue, Jack and I hummed out of tune. Emmanuel sat silent, nursing a hangover and sucking Rennies.
