As was common in the 1920’s, winning race pigeons were often rewarded with a portrait.

This pigeon, named “The Gem”, was painted by EH Windred for pigeon fancier CJ Stagg. Gem was the ‘Flown Marennes & Dam’ champion.

What a bird.

Please note this is not a picture of “The Gem” but is instead a picture of my Windred painting, “Beato”. If you want to see “The Gem”, and lots of other pigeon paintings by this artist, then visit my webpage –
