A Burbidge photograph album

This is one of the treasures of Market Lavington Museum. Local photographs are always appreciated, but one belonging to the Burbidge family is extra special as they lived in the cottage beside the churchyard in the village from 1907 to 1954 and that building became our museum in 1985.

Mr Burbidge was a gardener by profession and his own garden was well tended, before the school took over the building and turned the garden into a playground. Here we see his daughter, Flo, beside the house, surrounded by sunflowers.

Unfortunately, none of the photographs are labelled. We would love to know the story behind this one.
