From Flickr: “Thatched cottages and flats on the bicycle – oh bliss!!!” by National Library of Ireland on The Commons

December 22, 2018 Uncategorized

To end the week where we have had doubles, rebels and Gandelows we now have a truly charming Eason shot. A man mends a bicycle outside the door of a thatched cottage with a young girl in a pinny standing behind him watching the photographer at work. In the background is a town or city marked by a high spire dominating the landscape. There is no doubt but this scene has changed drastically in the meantime, if we can locate it!?
