Queensferry Harbour
1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

£14.00

Just north of Edinburgh and nestling on the shores of the Firth of Forth, lies the little town of South Queensferry which has a population of around 12,000 people. Looking across the town’s walled harbour, there is a fine view of the Forth Bridge completed in 1890.

Queensferry has been blessed with one of the loveliest high streets, lined with ancient inns, shops and churches, including the 15th century St Mary’s Episcopal Church. In a unique annual pagan-like ritual, a local man is covered from head-to-toe in sticky burrs, with a floral hat and a waistband sash. The “Burry Man” is then paraded through the town, refreshed with whisky and supported by two attendants, whilst children rush from door to door collecting money on his behalf.

As with all Gibsons jigsaws, the beautifully illustrated pieces are made from the highest quality 100% recycled board and therefore a pleasure to work with again and again.

Terry Harrison was born near Wendover and attended Farnham Art School before becoming a graphic artist in London. Later, he joined the Yellow Pages as an illustrator and then Thompson Directories in their Farnborough head office. During his spare time, Terry pursued his first love: landscape painting.


By 1984 the demand for his original work was so great that he decided to paint full time and never looked back! After just 12 short years Terry was awarded the Best Up and Coming Published Artist of The Year by the Fine Art Trade Guild, and five years later in 2001, Terry had his first book ‘Brush with Watercolour’ published; this sold over 140,000 copies.


It’s no surprise that Terry Harrison could claim to have his drawings in most homes throughout the country, in some form or another. Terry was a kind, thoughtful man who created wonderful pieces of art, many of which have been in our jigsaw puzzle range for almost two decades. He will be greatly remembered and we hope that his artwork continues to bring joy to all who have the privilege of viewing his paintings.
