Ailsworth (c.1911)

An evening shot capturing a location in Ailsworth village around 1911.

Mark Smith adds, “That is Kek Cottage (white with thatch roof and opposite what is now the dentist surgery) at the top of Main Street in Ailsworth.

The photo is taken almost on the corner where Main Street goes round into the top of Maffit Road. There was a pig farm just out of shot on the right and in the field behind the cameraman was a small pond. A travelling circus used to pitch up there once a year to entertain the villagers.”
