The Valley Farm, near Sudbourne

The Valley Farm, near Sudbourne

This is one of five farms in the environs of the Suffolk village of Sudbourne depicted by Louisa Puller for the Recording Britain scheme. Puller was notable among her colleagues for not attempting to hide signs of modernity or progress in her rural scenes; where other Recording Britain artists chose not to show recent innovations (such as wires, electric lights, or cars), Puller often included telephone wires in her farm scenes, as she has done here.
