Tales From The Kern Baby And Birmingham Library's Benjamin Stone Archive: Ether Signposts #41/52a - A Year In The Country
A while ago I came across the collection of Benjamin Stone's work at Birmingham Library, where apparently they have over 17,000 photographs by him: "Sir Benjamin Stone travelled around the country in search of unusual festivals and customs. This gallery includes May Day festivals, the Sherborne Pageant, Corby Pole Fair and the Northumberland Baal Fires." I think I came across the collection following explorations around his photograph of a Kern Baby which is: "...from a festival called ‘The Harvest Home’ in Northumberland in 1901."
