On a day when the rain is coming down like stair rods in Dublin the Clonbrock Collection brightens it up with a lovely summer shot from Wales in the early 1900s. A young lady standing outside a terrace of houses on the village green where many of the upstairs windows are wide open to catch any breeze, and ladies are out in skirts, blouses and hats. The most attractive part of the scene, for some at least, is the fact that there is a dog on display!

UPDATE: Sounding the Location Identified Klaxon, thanks to our own John Spooner ! This is not Wales, but the very picturesque Broadway in the Cotswolds, Worcestershire, England. Glad to see that the dog in the distance was appreciated. Our dog provision working group search tirelessly for canine content.

    Wales? Looks to me suspiciously like Broadway, the Cotswold honey-pot. Either that or they have identical windows. Screenshot from 2019-11-04 10-16-07 Streetview

    straight in there at number 1 ! spooner scores to win. in the more of stair rod rain it is great to spot the dog, a Cumbrian dog. from the pictures of Broadway, the road has been conserved with many of the buildings intact

    Crincrieth is in Wales. Maybe they were touring and mixed locations.

    Is that Ethel or Edith Dillon? I always get confused ... She reminds me of Mary Poppins - on Broadway !
