This little book is a compilation of over 200 photographs of postcards of the country life from 1900-20. The collection is an eclectic mix of sports, pastimes and attitudes from the period.


These postcards provide an interesting insight into how countryside life was perceived during this period. A time of much social change. From the rise of the motorcar to the greater participation of women in sports such as tennis, golf and cricket. However it was still a time when the horse remained central to rural life both in terms of transport, agriculture and leisure.


Many well known artists such as Lionel Edwards, F A Stewart Lynward Palmer and others provided illustrations. This book is a useful reference to all those studying visual representations of sport.
