Brook Street, Watlington, as taken by Collier

Brook Street, Watlington, early 20th century

This image by Phillip Collier reveals the purposeful and business-like stride of the man in the foreground, who looks like he may be at work or perhaps off to work (note the basket over his shoulder). If you look carefully you will also see a cyclist in the background, echoing the means by whcih my friend navigates these same streets today. MERL P DX/323/E204/8
