Shakespeare.It is a common enough picture postcard view of Stratford-upon-Avon, but with enough of a 1920’s twisted to catch my attention. Note the motorcycle and sidecar combination parked up by the curb; perhaps it belongs to the photographer. The photographer must have been quite remarkable, because two of the passers by are looking straight into the camera (the lady on the left and gentleman wearing a flat cap; half hidden behind the chap in plus fours who is strutting across the scene blissfully unaware the photograph is being taken). On the right a lady is striding very confidently towards the camera and across Henley Street; I wonder if that is purely coincidental.
