Summary

First published in 1922, English Country Life and Work presents an enduring record of a long-vanished way of life. Travelling from farm to moorland, from coast to leafy lane, Ernest C Pulbrook documents the people, traditions and crafts of rural England, painting a fascinating and moving portrait of a world which has now been all but swept away by modernity. Evocative descriptions and photos capture both the cottages, cornfields, rivers and woodlands of the countryside and its inhabitants. The squire, the dairymaid, the blacksmith and the gypsy all roam through these pages, as well as more unusual characters such as the snake-catcher and the supertramp. Whether you are interested in social history or just want to take a nostalgic trip back in time, English Country Life and Work offers a spellbinding view of the past, brought vividly back to life.
