9781906122584: Living off the Land: Country People 1850-1950

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. Village blacksmiths, ploughmen, hop-pickers, tramps, rat-catchers, working children, game-keepers and many others -- they are all celebrated and explained here by Frances Mountford's wonderful illustrations, anecdotes and photographs. The jigsaw of all those who made up country life are pieced together in this fascinating "scrap-book"-style, highly informative book.

About the Author:

Frances Mountford spent her early years following her father round his farm and taking pleasure in the animals, machinery, flowers and horses, many of which she sketched. After qualifying as a teacher in Cheltenham, Frances went to the USA where her husband was working and enjoyed studying the different flora and fauna there. On her return to the UK three years later, her work was published in various magazines. She is author of A Commoner's Cottage, Heartbreak Farm and The Box Hill Guide and she regularly exhibits her sculptures in ceramic and bronze-resin.
