Two boys at the seaside

— Ian Spittlehouse

Paper given 4 September 2021 at the 3rd day of Oxonmoot 2021

While investigating the references to Tolkien’s unpublished sketches of Trwyn Llanbedrog in North Wales I found that some of the archived sketches bore a striking resemblance to other features of the coastline near Llanbedrog. This paper outlines this investigation and goes on to present an argument for alternative locations for two published sketches. The two sketches in question appear in Hammond and Scull’s J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator and Chronology with the titles Ship at Anchor’ and Two Boys at the Seaside’.
