The current owner lives in Australia. He quotes: ‘David gave this little painting to my grandfather thanking him for their time spent together. My grandfather, Dan Dockrell, ran a big timber company in Mulobezi, Zambia. They met when David was looking to purchase a couple of old steam engines with a view to bringing them to the UK. They spent many happy hours together searching and finding these engines. I understand Dan introduced David to some useful contacts so that at least one of the steam engines could be imported to the UK. I remember there was a BBC documentary about David finding several old trains in Africa. It was a very memorable time for both of them!’
