Coombe Cottage 1954

The very first picture taken on my new Digna Dacora camera; 1954; The building was Listed, but that did not stop the decay and collapse. I was later asked by a local historian for the negative - I gave him a print and stuck to the negative. By 1985, the thatched roof had collapsed in, there is precious little left now. A piece of history neglected. Chyandour Brook (Coombe River as we knew it) still rushes by, under the old bridge.

      Trouble is society and business knows the price of everything and the value of nothing . Something that has worth is to be cared for for it to survive, whether that be marriage, children, animals or houses.
