since about Victorian times (roughly 1837 on)
this quote from flora thompson is idealizing the past I think. Wonderful painting of the old woman, and the village scene.
I think that sums up Flora rather well but her book is delightful if not exactly inclusive. Still every generation thinks they were happier in their youth!
I have a very old etching of King John's Bridge that is signed by the artist.....but I can only make out Peter.....it is framed under glass and looks to have been framed in the 40's? I would love to learn something about this original work of art. If anyone has info please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
