This shot appears to have been made a little later than a lot of the shots I’ve posted recently. Some of the familiar faces look a little older.
I noticed that the boys looked older, and I wondered where all of the men-folk had gone. There are plenty of wives and children and a few older men, but where are the husbands? Was this during World War I, perhaps?
Here is a shot of the entire negative.
As with all of the photographs in the Capewell Collection, I placed the 5â€³ x 7â€³ glass negative on a lightbox and shot them with a digital camera locked down on a tripod. The â€œprocessingâ€ was done digitally on a Mac using Adobe Photoshop.
