More about this scene

Caption for Newton In Bowland, C1955: Three cars outside the Farmers Arms Inn indicate an increase in visitors to this 18th-century stone village. The women baked bread, washed clothes, used carved spoons made of sycamore wood (it did not stain), cared for children and eagerly awaited the weekly carrier's cart to replenish their stocks of candles, lamp oil and black lead. To be photographed would be a charming diversion!
