The Garden Model Village - Woodcarvers Shop - Woolmer Green Featured Print

The Garden Model Village - Woodcarvers Shop - Woolmer Green

Harry Macdonald's Model Village in the Garden of his Woodcarver's Shop - Woolmer Green, Knebworth, Hertfordshire. Harry MacDonald (a Yorkshireman) came south and brought this cottage for 1, 000 in 1937. He built his model village over the years & also carved serious subjects. Macdonald died on 23rd April 1971 and the cottage was (very sadly in my opinion) demolished in 1981. Date: circa 1930s

Starry Gazey Pie, Ship Inn, Mousehole, Cornwall Featured Print

Starry Gazey Pie, Ship Inn, Mousehole, Cornwall

A mouthwatering example of a Starry Gazey Pie, served up on Tom Bawcock's Eve (23 December) at Mousehole in Cornwall. The dish, with fish heads and tails sticking out of it, is unique to Mousehole, and is prepared at the Ship Inn there. According to legend, the town had no fish because of stormy weather, so two days before Christmas a local fisherman, Tom Bawcock, went out in a storm and came back with seven different types of fish. Seen here is a man dressed up as Tom Bawcock, with a false beard, with landlord, landlady and pub customers, no doubt all looking forward to sampling the pie. Date: circa 1980s
