David Hodgson (Mayor of Liverpool, 1846)

WAG 1037 was a companion piece to WAG 1038, a portrait of J. Bramley-Moore, the chairman of the Liverpool Dock Committee in 1846. The Frederick Tatham attribution is based on an article in the Liverpool Albion, 13th September 1847, that mentions a print of a portrait of Mr John Bramley-Moore by Frederick Tatham. WAG 1038 is very similar in style and size, although full face rather than three-quarter profile, to the lithographic portrait. [See docket file for the article and the portrait print]
