Our thanks to Wendy Watts for lending us a book which includes this old photo of Waltham Fair. The caption says it was taken c.1890. It was a fairly poor image, and spread across two pages, so I’ve had to do a fair amount of work to hide both the fold and the marks.
Click on the image to expand it into full frame. And click here to view a close up detail, showing the windmill in the background.
I’m not sure where the field is, but I guess a little research on some of our old images of the windmill might shed some light on this. But if anyone knows, please leave a comment below.
