A Rich Tradition in Photographs
traditional photos but photos of
part of the UK's rich traditions
From Hobby Horses in Cornwall to Village Fetes in Kent and Sword Dancers on a windswept Boxing Day to the Floral Dance on a spring morning
The photos on the site hopefully convey an impression of what goes on at these events. At present these are in the main recent photos since a change from film to digital. There is a reservoir of older images which will appear gradually as I can get them scanned in.
Some of the photos have a lot of information and some virtually none. If you have details about any of the events that you think could add to the usefulness of the image, not just now but in the future when these images may be part of an archive, then I would be delighted to receive it. You can contact me at email@example.com
These images are all displayed at medium to low resolution for speed of download and storage space. If you need a high resolution image please contact me.
