The majority of Stanley's illustrations were produced for the weekly series of children's stories written by Min and published in The South Wales Evening Post from the late 1940's to the mid 1960's.
Aged 101 year Lewis reworked many of his drawings using Photoshop to add colour to the remarkable images which half a centuray earlier had graced the pages of the South Wales Evening Post.
