Many more pictures by Amaletta can be viewed on my www.robertdawson.co.uk. This includes recipe and stereotypical postcards and repro postcards from Victorian/Edwardian times, Work and leisure, the Canning case, Georgian times, kooring, Epsom, wagons, as well as a range of superb Christmas cards.
This wonderful picture of Coldharbour, New Forest, is especially significant because it is one of only a small handful of pictures showing a toilet tent. Clearly, it is for the use of the old lady. Below, The Good Samaritan. Below that, Gypsies on the road to Bettws Aledr, by GP Boyce, afternoon, August 1851. Below that, Homeless; Irish Mendicants; man and children by tree.
Above, destitute Irish Travellers; below, Gypsy widow.
The painting by Turner, below, is of a lane at Pilsley,. near Bakewell, a popular ancient stopping ground of the Boswells. Just after WW1, members of the Sherriff family were camping there (further round the lane to the left) when a tragedy occurred and the family buried a woman and a stillborn baby next to this lane.
This batch of pictures is by the artist Amaletta and were some of those used to illustrate one of my books of GT folk tales.
