Old Photograph of Eyam - Plague Service August 30th 1914 (3)

Old Photograph of Plague Service August 30th 1914 (3) (Eyam)

This photo shows the scene at Cucklett Delph on August 30th 1914.

A magnificent sea of faces, especially when magnified. We wondered how many of the menfolk on the photo survived World War One, which had broken out just a few days before (July 28th). What other concerns, besides the service might have been going through these people's minds?

An enlarged version (1.52MB) of this photograph is available for those who would like a closer look.

This is one of a series of postcards sent to Mary Elizabeth McCann (née Bamford) by friends and relatives living in Eyam, after she went to live in Romiley in Cheshire. She was the submitter, Andrew's grandmother.
