The epic story of how North Wales-born TE Lawrence conquered his own 3,275km bike challenge
Photographs of the medieval castles visited by T.E. Lawrence and a map of his route can be found here!
T.E. Lawrence was a very private person. It’s probably true that he did not respond to fan mail. He was selective with his correspondence, especially considering the amount of time it took to maintain relationships via mail and many of his relationships were long-distance. He was also ashamed of his role in the war and made a point not to profit from his involvement there. I’m sure he would not feel comfortable writing to strangers about his role in the Middle East.
Happy Birthday T.E. Lawrence, born August 16, 1888 in Tremadog, Wales. This is definitely one of my favorite photographs of him.
T.E. Lawrence - 1922
I found this photo in a new biography on Siegfried Sassoon and covertly took a quick snapshot of it at the bookstore, as any T.E. fan would do!
Progression I did for my Grandfather.
He wanted to see how drawing with a tablet worked so I told him to pick something for me to draw.
He chose T.E Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia).
