Further information

Weaver Hawkins visited Tangier in 1922, where he was inspired by the street life and architecture of Moorish buildings. The visit
was a turning point for him, helping him come to terms with the difficulties his wartime injuries had left him.

‘I have never regretted the would-seem fool-hardy stay in Tangier because it forced me to face up fully to my condition and the managing of it as much as was possible … I am sure it has a place in the development of my philosophy too.’
