The cottages were once part of the Possingworth Estate, belonging to the nearby Possingworth Manor, and divided for sale in the early twentieth century. A sales particulars document relating to the sale of the estate in 1908 (see SC01134) states that two cottages were sold as part of the lot including Browning's Farm, but it is unclear whether the cottages pictured are those in question. The Bedford Lemere daybook does not record the client that this photograph was taken for, although photographs of nearby Possingworth Manor were taken for George Trollope and Sons, builders, so it is possible that the company also commissioned this photograph.
