On a day when the rain is coming down like stair rods in Dublin the Clonbrock Collection brightens it up with a lovely summer shot from Wales in the early 1900s. A young lady standing outside a terrace of houses on the village green where many of the upstairs windows are wide open to catch any breeze, and ladies are out in skirts, blouses and hats. The most attractive part of the scene, for some at least, is the fact that there is a dog on display!
UPDATE: Sounding the Location Identified
Klaxon, thanks to our own John Spooner
! This is not Wales, but the very picturesque Broadway in the Cotswolds, Worcestershire, England. Glad to see that the dog in the distance was appreciated. Our dog provision working group search tirelessly for canine content.
