More Tea, Vicar?

Some things in England don’t change very much over the years – sadly, our red telephone boxes have mostly been flogged off and you don’t see that many helmeted bobbies on the beat nowadays –  but come this time of year, you can still see village fetes springing up all over the country. This one took place at the weekend on the Vicarage lawn at Northam.

 

About throughstones

I am primarily a visual artist, living on the North Devon coast, a beautiful semi-rural area in South West England. I am interested in full engagement with 'place' and the eternal movement of life - particularly as it relates to what we call 'the natural environment'.

    Brilliant! I wish we had something like this here – your photos are real glimpses into a bygone era, when people were more ‘respectable’ and ‘civilised’ and ladies and gentlemen still dressed up nicely to go out in public. 😉

    • yes – there is something rather comforting and nostalgic about all this. Unfortunately I have caught the malaise, and am now one of the scruffiest people I know…
