An Essex Pastoral
Photographs: Frank Osborne
Introduction: Revd Thomas McMahon, Bishop of Brentwood
Text assembled by: Ian Wilkes
ISBN: 0 86025 511 5

From 1910 to 1950 Frank Osborne travelled the county recording rural landscapes, places of interest, and village scenes in photographs that reflect a more tranquil age. As well as portraits of Thaxted, Harlow, Maldon, and Saffron Walden (to name a few at random), there are seascapes at Paglesham, Foulness, and Wivenhoe, rural scenes at Mundon, Hatfield Forest, and Rochford, and buildings at Tollesbury, Finchingfield, and Purleigh.

The pictures are supported by relevant quotations from Essex authors like Addison, Maxwell, Wentworth Day, and Yearsley. The photographs are now in the collection of the Bishop of Brentwood, who has contributed an introduction to Frank Osborne and his pictures.
