Market Lavington Museum

New Year and New Acquisitions


2013 has begun well for Market Lavington Museum with new photographs of Easterton given to us. Our donor is the granddaughter of Mr Robin Edward Godfrey who ran the shop in Easterton from the 1920s until 1940. Many of the photos were taken outside the shop where, apart from the people, the adverts on the shop are of great interest. Some, both we and our donor need help with. People need identifying. It can be particularly hard to identify folks dressed up for carnival, but this photo is surely a carnival one.

Easterton Fire Brigade - surely a carnival entry./ Can you help us with who the fireman are and when this photo was taken?

Here we see the Easterton Fire Brigade – clearly not the real one – on a wonderful small wagon.

The crew are disguised with false beards. Let’s see them a little closer.
