• Victorian vignette in Burnham Beeches

    Firstly - a happy new year to all visitors & apologies for scarcity of posts these days - hectic life rather kicks things like this into the shadows.

    Thought you might enjoy this fabulous little vignette of Victorian tourism at Burnham Beeches in Buckinghamshire. This glass lantern slide was created around 1890 to the best of my knowledge and features one of the mighty ancient beech pollards, which fortunately are still to be found in some order to this day, although whether or not this particular individual has survived is hard to say. Great composition & good light on the tree with a young lad supposedly asleep beneath while someone hiding in the hollow tree appears to be using a little fishing rod to perhaps secretly hook something out of the basket. Not sure, but a cracking little image to be sure.
