Griggs was born in Hitchin and concentrated on his hometown and surroundings in his early etchings.

He is best known for his illustrations in the Highways and Byways Series of Books, published between 1902 and 1918. The two drawings are original drawings for the Hertfordshire edition. The acquisition includes a further print of 'The Biggin Almshouse'.
