History of Artefact Photo 1 – The Long-Case Clock. Silver dial and moon phase clock. Set in front of wallpaper with foliage design. Generous skirting board pictured. The clock would date from approximately 1770.
Photo 2 – Gawsworth Church. Perpendicular style. It is either Victorian reproduction or could be a fifteenth century original. There is a reflection of the church in the pond.
Photo 3 – Bob Hamson with his dog. He was Katayoun’s great-grandfather’s brother. Wearing a boater with a stiff collar and knee gaiters. Middle-class.
Photo 4 – Mechanical Hay-Cutter. Two horses driven by a man seated on the cutter. He is wearing classic, typical labourer’s clothing.
Photo 5 – Eight farm-workers – all but one in their shirt sleeves and waistcoats. Wearing a mixture of hats and caps. The oldest man is holding a galvanised can of milk.
Historian John Stedman, Rosalinda Hardiman

Special Memories ‘I have no personal association with any of the photos. I know that my grandmother loved them so I treasure them.’
