There is something particularly appealing about old works of art by anonymous makers, by painters and photographers of the past whose names will never now be known; this exhibition features postcards of Somerset, the majority pre-1920 in date, many hand-tinted, all owned by local collector and writer Jeremy Cooper. The emphasis of the collection is social, on how people lived, concentrating on postcards made by amateur photographers, taken in town markets and parks, in village streets, at home in the garden, at church fĂȘtes, on holiday by the seaside, at school, and at work.
