Alan Lowndes was a largely self-taught artist who admired L. S. Lowry. He was born in Stockport and mainly painted his home area. He recorded a way of life that was fast disappearing in the 1950s and 1960s. He depicted the daily lives and hopes of working class communities in neighbourhoods that were being replaced by high rise flats.
Bennett's Corner is a typical working class street in Stockport, with red brick terraced houses and a corner shop.
