Sitting on the right-hand side of the three paintings is 'Gregory House'. The three towers together are known as the 'Leverton Gardens Towers' but also known locally as the 'Lansdowne Development Towers' too (also the Lansdowne Complex - it can get a bit confusing).
The towers received their current predominantly grey exterior cladding, very reminiscent of the cladding that was on Grenfell Tower, when all three were refurbished between 2007 and 2009. The view is a familiar Sheffield view looking up from London Road on the south side of the city.
In the foreground, you can see the pub Barry's Bar on the left and on the right the wall of the noodle bar Yama Sushi. Both are closed.
On a Friday evening, pre-Covid, Barry's would have people on the streets and the back garden full of life. Yama Sushi similarly would be filling the pavement with light and noise, but its shutters are very clearly down.
There is a term that comes to mind - Kenopsia (noun) - the eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that's usually bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet.
