Two Drunks In The Road



Years ago I went down Manchester Centre to watch the Chinese New Year celebrations. Later on I was walking up a quiet side street to the car. Suddenly two men hobbled out of a pub doorway and attempted to walk down the street. They were well watered down and couldnít walk in a straight line. One was holding himself up against a wall and the other just fell into the street. He tried to get up but gave up and decided to stay there.


I noticed a young girl with a dog watching them. By the expression on her face she hadnít been exposed to seriously drunk people and was mildly horrified.


This tiny 6" x 4" canvas shows the scene. You might need a magnifying glass to see the drunks and the girl with the dog.
