    The child in the cradle looks about 15 yrs old .....Poor thing.

    Saul Goodman It's all good, man

    He looks like he just walked off the set of Trumpton or Camberwick Green.

    planetgeli There's no future in England's dreaming

    I have a far more idyllic photo taken from my cottage around 1910 than the above. Has to be said, view hasn’t changed in 100 years, though fashions have. Mainly because there appeared to be no fashion in 1910.
