'My mood … is over the people in all my scenes. I could not, I did not want to, paint them as they appear. The truth is that I was not painting them. I have been called a painter of the Manchester workpeople. But my figures are not exactly that. They are ghostly figures which tenant these courts and lane- ways which seems to me so beautiful, they are symbols of my mood, they are myself' (L. S. Lowry, quoted in Edwin Mullins, 'My Lonely Life', Sunday Telegraph, 20th November 1966)
