Description

A series of old photographs with explanatory text.

Picturesque Tuxford is seen during Edwardian days when horses and carts were the dominant mode of transport. Eldon Street, Newcastle Street, the Excelda Cafe, the market place, the Newcastle Arms, Markham Moor Inn, Lincoln Street and Ashvale all feature, along with an interesting postcard of ‘The Hell’, a grotto created by eccentric R. S. Wilson of Tuxford Hall.

Pictures of Laxton show the village when its roads were still unsurfaced and it was safe for children to line up across the main street for a photograph. In another view livestock is seen grazing on the grass verges beside the road. 48pp
