Not much stuff from Orford Algy?

 

Bill :)

Sorry Bill I only have four of Orford and they will show as I work down the list, they are Orford 'Mount'(house), Orford Hall(2), and the old Orford school.

It mustn't have been a very photogenic area or maybe they were frightened of getting there cameras pinched. :oops: shouldn't have said that, now I'm going to get Harry knocking on my door!. :wink::D :grin:

Wouldn't Orford have been all farmland in those days? :huh:

Your absolutely correct in 1910 it was mostly agriculture and as late as 1928 there wasn't much there, mostly farm land and a tannery that had been there since before 1849.
