Scope and content

This picture shows Freda and Tom Bradley with their children Janet & Ray visiting Beam Cottage, surrounded by daffodils. Janet wrote

" I remember when we used to come and play with you (Julie Powell who lived at Beam Cottage) and Miss Wylie gave us paper to draw on. This picture was taken in 1954 in with all the daffodils that Miss Thomson grew. I remember there was a well in the garden, the garden was always so pretty with lavender down the sides of the paths. Lovely lawns and flowers and fruit trees. There was always an abundance of plums and my Granny would be given some to make jam with. Granny used to clean for them (Kate Wylie and Dor Thomson) and I think my Auntie Ethel (Sheppard) did too. I think they may have babysat for you as well. My Dad always looked after their cars for them."

Dor Thomson had a small market garden at Beam Cottage and long before it became fashionable, it was organic.
