Random comment at a children's party that led David Gepp to these silent signatures under 'the Iron Bridge' at Berwyn station, Llangollen.


Wiping some of the mud off the wall, a faint trace turned into 'James Candy ... 23 Castle Street. Llangollen'. Around his signature were some other names and dates from the First World War, when these young soldiers, probably sheltered from the rain, had passed the time while waiting for the train to take them to the Front.

This series of photographs is the result of David's numerous visits to Llangollen to document the signatures and monuments.

This exhibition is part of the BBC's 'Art That Made Us' festival to coincide with the broadcast of a new documentary series exploring how works of art, literature, design and music have helped shape our creative story.
