I prefer this of the two photos, less posed. And I love the kettle on the fire, presumably for tea!

I am rather surprised that they didn't have folding chairs and tables. They do seem very much at home in the countryside. I suppose that a hundred more years of urban living has distanced most of us from that relationship with the natural world.

Cool! I always wonder how they managed to keep their clothes clean;-)

Seem to remember my parents using much more 'spot-cleaning' and the clothes brush was used extensively. Then of course people who could afford trips out to the country in a motor-car either had domestic servants or used laundries.
