An old photo of Curry Rivel appeared in the Daily Mail online, 07/12/17.
Postcards from 100 years ago reveal a snapshot of life in rural England when few cars clogged the roads and getting to work or school meant hopping on a bike or riding a horse-and-cart.

A collection of postcards depicting rural scenes have revealed a fascinating snapshot of a more innocent time.
At a time when the automobile was in still in its infancy, it is no surprise to see many of streets virtually empty.
Postcards, collected over a lifetime by one man, being sold by Chaterhouse Auctioneers of Sherborne, Dorset.
The photos, numbering in the thousands, were discovered inside 40 shoe boxes owned by an elderly collector.
