Description

A photograph of English village life, taken by George Davison [1854-1930] in about 1890. Cows cross the village pond and children play by the water's edge. A peaceful study of an English village on a sunny day. Though this photograph suggests bucolic romance, late-Victorian rural life is also known for its economic depression and poverty. George Davison was a noted pictorial photographer and a founder member of The Linked Ring in 1892. In 1897 he became assistant manager of the Eastman Photographic Materials Company, renamed in 1898, Kodak Limited. He became managing director in 1900.
