 Not with the Victorian period, but with the commemorations of WWI coming up, I thought something from around that period might be appropriate.

These are two of the buildings in Ranelagh Road mentioned in the piece,  The top one is what was once the Ranelagh Hotel and public house, sitting at the start of the road and opposite the railway station.

The lower one the butchers shop at no’s 9 and 10,  home of the Holton family.

Holtons the butchers store

The piece in the link below is part of the Park District group that looks at the history of their heritage and the area where  they live.

Writing a book, blog, short stories or your own family history, then why not bring them to life with historical graphics.
I have a huge collection that cover illustrations from numerous Victorian articles about travel, prisons, children’s homes, poverty, philanthropy…
Check out my Etsy site for Victorian illustrations, many local ones being added all the time from my own personal collection.
