A photographic view of the stately home of Charlecote Park near Stratford-Upon-Avon, taken from acros the river Avon, published by Francis Bedford & Co. William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was said to have fled to London after being caught poaching in the grounds of this 12th-century home. Bedford (1816-1894) was a prolific and well-respected photographer, best known for his numerous topographic and architectural views of Britain. During the 1860s and 1870s Bedford travelled extensively throughout Britain, taking hundreds of views of British scenery. He was asisted by his son, William (1846-1893) whose work is almost indistinguishable from that of his father.
