He worked extensively in the South West of England, the West Midlands and in Wales. Most of the negatives were taken after 1860. The few taken as late as the 1890s were the work of Bedfordâ€™s son. Card mount have slight crease on one corner, photograph perfect.
The ivy has been removed, the castle is now earning its keep. Stephensons first tubular bridge and Telfords supension bridge still stand witness to the constant queues of cars, todays age brings. A contrast to then not a cart or coach in sight. Can you find a single person hiding some where in the picture , can you guess or see where he is? The first correct answer to me, the prize a free set of 6 specialist postcards for the winner.
