Staffordshire’s Senior Museums Officer, Chris Copp with more recent additions from Barlaston to Staffs Past Track
September’s Gazette featured a selection of photographs taken from an album which belonged to the Kirkham family of Old Road Farm in Barlaston, taken in the late 19th century. And here’s a second dip into local rural life from the 1890’s.
Many thanks again to Andrew Kirkham for passing on these images for the Staffordshire Past Track website.
These photographs and others from the same album are available on the Staffordshire Past Track website (www.staffspasttrack.org.uk).
