Rural scene


Photographed by Thomas Edge of Preston and Llandudno.

At the time of the 1851 census, Thomas Edge was a 'Dandy loom weaver' in Lancashire's cotton industry. It's the classic tale of Victorian self-betterment that he managed to establish not just one studio in Preston but another in the Welsh resort of Llandudno, where he eventually settled with his wife and children.
