Photographs in the sunshine

Had a good day yesterday trying to find the locations included in the 1903 album by Bedford-Lemare that we are studying for the project. It was great to finally work out which trees were still there, which windows we can still recognise, and to track down the places where they must have been standing when they took the photos. Occasionally we would spot a person we hadn’t noticed before- shopkeepers standing in the doorways or an old man in his garden. LH
