Market Lavington Museum

A dog and a baby


We have recently looked at some of the merchandise sold by Alf Burgess at his shop on the High Street in Market Lavington. (See Cock o’th North.) However, his main line of business was photography and we have many examples of his work in Market Lavington Museum. Cartes de visite were a popular format in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Unfortunately, we rarely know who the subjects of our photographs are and the same is true of this one.

Most of our cartes de visite feature children or adults, but we do have another one with a dog in the picture. (See Unknown but lovely.)

Of course, if any our readers are able to identify the subjects in our photographs, we would be delighted to hear from you.
