This picture must have been taken early in the twentieth century. It shows two ladies, a girl and a boy in charge of a hay cart and shire horse. It is by Meadow Farm along the Buckland Road. The style of cart is that of an Oxford cart.
Suzanne White says "This is a photograph that I have recently found of my great grandfather as a boy, Edward William Portlock (Clarke) - born in 1893 with his sisters Elsie and Eva Portlock outside a cottage where they lived at the time, along the Buckland Road as seen on the 1901 and 1911 census (I found the cottages on google and although now extended can clearly see they are still there). I think the picture would have been taken somewhere around 1906/8. I think the lady with them could be their mother who was called Elizabeth and I think her maiden name could have been Radband-Shepard but if that is the case I can’t find out too much about her."
