For a number of years I have been researching local links with Giles and I
have identified around 60 cartoons which show scenes or have some other
local connection. A similar number of drawings and cartoons, etc. exist
which Giles produced for local groups and individuals.
This research may lead to a book or, at the very least end up in the Suffolk
Record Office for anyone to see. Although I have spoken to many local
people, there may be other links I have not discovered. I should be pleased
to hear from anyone who has a personal drawing by Giles, a copy of which
could be added to the collection, or has an anecdote or knows of an incident
which led to one of Giles's published cartoons.
