Local resident Andrew Ratcliffe was trawling the internet recently and came across an interesting article that featured fascinating black and white images of what life was like for people in the 19th and early 20th centuries in this country and how the issues they faced were not so different than the ones we face today.

Particularly notable among the images were two from our area, in Dinton and Haddenham.

Members of Haddenham Museum Trust and regular visitors to the village museum will already be familiar with these images, but for many resident of Haddenham they offer an intriguing view of the lives of local people in former times.

Our thanks to Andrew for drawing this article to our attention.
