Over one hundred and fifty of the best photographic images from the turn of the twentieth century are reproduced here together with contemporary descriptions of Sussex folk and their lives. The textual images are complemented by the high-quality sepia photographs which combine to present the essence of the past lives of ordinary men and women in a county epitomized by the long line of the Downs, the dense woodland of the Weald, and the ever-changing coastline. The harmonious blend of pictures and voices creates a rich and evocative tapestry of life in Sussex. This is a book to fascinate and delight everyone who knows this historic land of the South Saxons. There could be no better expression of this bygone era for those, who like Rudyard Kipling, have a love of Sussex. God gives all men all earth to love, But since man's heart is small, Ordains for each one spot shall prove Beloved over all. Each to his choice, and I rejoice The lot has fallen to me In a fair ground - in a fair ground - Yea, Sussex by the sea!
