Artist's description:

A local project blending archive pictures with new.
Finding the identical vantage point was a challenge, ranging from up the church spire, to the bedrooms and offices of local folk. It was also a fascinating insight into the perspective and abilities of turn of the century equipment.

The Market Place. “During the last hundred years or so every time someone dug a hole in or around Masham market place bones would be found. These were sometimes handed to the county archeologist, sometimes arranged on a shelf to gather dust and, in the case of one skull, unearthed when the flagpole footings went in, used as a football. In 1985 The Bruce Arms was extending its cellar when the builders discovered a quantity of human remains. The pub is in an area known as Dixon Keld (a keld is a spring). A few yards away in 1988 work began on new public toilets and, immediately – just below the surface – neat rows of skeletons were revealed. In an archaeological dig lasting six weeks over thirty former residents of Masham came to light.” From Tales of the Dales by Ian Scott Massie .uk/
