Cathedral Quarter Gloucester
🏦 Jemmy Wood stands in the door of the Gloucester Old Bank in this 1828 painting by J R Orton. Wood is sometimes called the ‘Gloucester Miser’ and is said to have been the inspiration for Charles Dickens’s Scrooge. When he died in 1836, Wood was the richest commoner (i.e. not landed gentry) in England. His £900,000 fortune was consumed by the legal battle to own it. The Gloucester Old Bank stood at 22 Westgate Street until it was demolished in the 1840s. This painting is held by the Museum of Gloucester. Pop in and see it soon!...#gloucester #localhistory #museums #museumofgloucester #lostbuilding ... See MoreSee Less
