    Default Seth Davy at Bevington Bush

    Seth Davy at Bevington Bush, with Bevington House Hotel shown in the background. This is where I think he's standing, based on the location of hotel, the small cottages in the background, and the angle the road follows, same as the cottages.


    Signage: above the girl carrying the bag on the left - the white writing on the warehouse door says:
    ==================
    J. Shakerley and Co (curved writing, top)

    Bevington Bush (middle)

    Tannery (curved writing, bottom)
    =================
    This building is labelled as a tannery on the earlier 1891 map below.


    Map is 1908





    A slightly earlier map, 1891, showing more of the detail surrounding the people in the photo.

    And, roughly, the location of the Seth Davy photo today.
