In 1860, Francis Frith began taking photographs of popular tourist destinations throughout Britain, and Frith & Co continued to do so for 50 years. As well as the thatched cottages and stone churches of picturesque English villages, Frith's archive of photographs includes fascinating images of country people at work and play. In this book, photographs from Victorian and Edwardian times are accompanied by an informative text covering all aspects of rural life and by photographs of similar locations and activities today.
