Ted Coney And His Morris Minor Visit Ely Cathedral!

Hills Road Staff Newsletter
Summer Term 2012

Yes, I really did go out on two wheels in my 1931 Morris Minor, when I left Ely Cathedral after attending the Business Exhibition there, to advertise my gallery, Ted Coney's Family Portraits. They decided after doing a bit more measuring, that rather than going out through the back entrance, there was a real chance I could go out the front doors!

However, it was decided to put a plank over one of the pillars so that I had two wheels on the ground and two much higher up. This meant that I was steering at a 45 degree angle with about an inch clearance on either side. To add to my embarrassment, the car wouldn't start and although I would have rather enjoyed ringing the AA ("I've broken down in Ely Cathedral") the staff seemed very keen to get rid of me.

In the end they bump-started the car along the pavement. I think my exhibition was a great success, although, understandably, people were more interested in the Morris rather than my paintings. I had two prints showing two paintings involving my Morris and a series of pictures to show my current work in progress 'Another Year' - which shows images of Ely Cathedral (which you can see on my website).
