And if I am honest it is hardly a page turner, but then that is the point. It is an ordinary scene of a bit of Chorltonville which was rarely photographed.
Like so many of these pictures of the period I am struck by the uniformity of the curtains at the windows of the houses.
The ‘ville is still fairly new and the trees have yet to grow to any size and the hedges are still dwarfed by the fence.
It may even be that the photographer was the same man who trawled the ‘ville in the spring of 1913/14 taking a lot of pictures. They were then either sold to different postcard companies or perhaps acquired by them.
