Frances Mountford’s unique collection of rare photographs combined with her imaginative pen and watercolour illustrations have captured the wonderful country characters whose living was directly linked with the land they worked on.

Walking through the countryside before the end of the Second World War, one could hardly fail to see people working in the fields, often with horses.

But huge changes were around the corner and a way of country life that had lasted centuries faded away.

Luckily, the camera had come into popular use by the 1860s and this book contains many fascinating photographs of rural workers.

Frances Mountford’s unique collection of rare photographs combined with her imaginative pen and watercolour illustrations have captured the wonderful country characters whose living was directly linked with the land they worked on.

The jigsaw of all those who made up country life are pieced together in this fascinating scrap-book-style, highly-informative book.
