In the last 19th and early 20th century, artists and photographers
would travel the country, making drawings and watercolours or taking
pictures of towns, villages and businesses. Many of these pictures were
turned into postcards, many of which survive today. Thus far, the only
pictures I've seen have been of Whitsome village, but I'm still hoping that
somewhere along the line, somebody visited Hilton or the farms and that
their work will turn up.
Some of the pictures shown in these sections are my own, others have been
sent by Whitsome descendants to whom I'm grateful. In other sections, I've
included the names of the owners of family photographs, but I haven't done
this for the postcards as they almost all came from more than one source.
Where I can, I've given an approximate date, together with my reasons, but
remember that dating such pictures is a fuzzy business!
