Initially we had a problem connecting with the NLI Catalogue but that has been sorted now.

This old Mason image of an old mill with, presumably, a lime kiln running line beside it for todays offering. So today we have no real date, place or idea if it still stands:-)

    It looks like the hull of an old up-side-down boat that is being used as a roof. I have seen photos from the same in either UK or Holland, just can't quite remember which.

    The lime produced here would be for personal use, crops or building protection, judging by the temporary nature of the Kiln. Maybe the dwelling is in construction.
