Jonathan Brown & Sadie B. Ward “Village Life in England 1860 – 1940” (1985)

This photographic record of village life over a century or more is a brilliant evocation of a way of life that has all but disappeared. The social and economic factors of village life are sketched in the text that accompanies each photo. Some 186 wonderfully evocative photos of a days gone by...


  1. Hi! I just finished reading this too. My mother was born in 1934 and raised in a North Staffs village so I picked this up from the library here in Toronto to put some pictures to her endless stories of village life. It's a lovely book. I'm going to see if I can find any other books from this publisher - there's a long list of them on the rear cover flap.

    I hope you're feeling well.


  2. Thanks Amy, hope you manage to find some more of them.
