Scope and content

These photographs were part of the collection belonging to Kit Jackson; they are of her family, Morris Men, work colleagues, buildings, billeted soldiers in Bampton, pigeon fancier, friends, school classes and the mystery tours she used to arrange. Where names are known they are on the photograph but if you can give me names to go on other pictures, please contact the Archive via the link on the front page of the website. Kit's father was Horace Henry Morse (son of John) who married Kate Fox (daughter of Timothy Fox) at Bampton on 9/10/1915. Horace collected the night soil (toilet waste) and the 'ashes' (items that today would go into the dustbin). The night soil was spread on field, untreated, and the ashes were taken down Gogg lane and deposited and they were also used to keep the lane built up. This was before the days of plastic wrapping and a time when most people burnt coal to keep warm so there really was plenty of ash.
