History of this artwork

The original painting of Coronation Street was painted by L.S. Lowry in 1957, it was 3 years afterwards that ITVs producers began the long lasting series. So typical of the atmosphere in which Lowry grew up and worked, the painting is of the worker's small terrace houses, with all the hustle and bustle of busy day, overshadowed by the factory wich loomed in the background.

The painting was expected to make £300,000-£500,000 It will undoubtedly make a great deal more. Archie Street was used by ITV as model for the soap's creation, in 1971 the street was knocked down.

Coronation Street used to be called 'Florizel Street' but when a tealady at the Granada studios said that it reminded her of cleaning fluid. The final choices, both of which were actual treets in Salford, were, Coronation Street and Jubilee Street

Lowry's painted Scenes illustrating the old streets of Salford before WWII Lowry's memories They came from the days when he would stroll through the streets of old Manchester collecting the rent.
