Photographs taken by F.C. Strutt of ‘bygone’ Inkpen

Accession Number:


These photographs are part of a series taken by the photographer F.C. Strutt around the village of Inkpen.  The top left picture illustrates a white shepherd’s smock, along with a selection of sheep bells and a crook that belonged to Charles Annetts.  The top right shows a selection of wooden and ceramic bowls made by D. Buckeridge.  The bottom left image has two small barrels and several tools used by the coopers Brance.  The last image is taken inside a house and shows a fireplace with a clarinet next to it.  On the other side of the fireplace is a fire crane, a metal structure that was designed to hold pots and kettles above an open fire making it easier to cook without burning the food.
