Original work: Pencil drawing
The Sydney Fresh Food and Ice Company, based in Ultimo, housed the horses who pulled carts delivering ice, milk and perishables to central Sydney. On many occasions Norman accompanied the delivery boy to sketch the horses in the stables and the long suffering lad would patiently hold up a horse's head so that Norman could perfect an eye or a nostril. Norman's insight into personality is evident in his animal drawings. He could depict with equal force the aristocratic arrogance of a thoroughbred and the resigned melancholy of a workhorse.
