Bossington OP01574

Bossington, Somerset, 1890-€“1910. Unknown photographer, probably Sir Henry Churchill Maxwell Lyte (1848-€“1940), platinum print. Lyte'€™s view of the village of Bossington in the decades before the First World War is full of interesting topographical details. The distant hill hints at the settlementa€™s secluded valley setting; the ancient gnarled tree and the stone and thatched cottages, one with a massive external chimney, suggest a place of great antiquity; the stone pavement and steps outside the cottage on the right warn of deep winter mud, not least in the unpaved road. The peaceful scene suggests a rural idyll, but few inhabitants probably shared that view.
