Crowland Abbey, Crowland, Lincolnshire

The west front of the Abbey Church of Our Lady, St Bartholomew and St Guthlac at Crowland Abbey. The photograph has been taken looking along East Street. The photographer has set up the image carefully. The people posed include; a group of children, a domestic servant and 3 people with bicycles. The boy leaning on the shop could be working as an errand boy. The shop to his right is H Perkins, tobacconist. He is advertising 'local views', presumably postcards to sell to tourists. The hanging sign reads 'The George Hotel'.
