Aerial Photograph of Ecton (from the South) circa 1952

sent to the website by John Smith, with the following comment:

Having seen the picture postcard of Ecton on your web site I thought you might like to see the one that I have which was most likely taken on the same day. I should imagine it could be accurately dated by an Ecton resident by the new construction that appears to be taking place just off the High Street. I can see smoke coming from the chimney of my grandmother Norah Smith's cottage in the High Street. In the next row of cottages up the Street lived my great aunts Emily and Edith Smith and across the road in the Jetty between High Street and West Street can be seen the cottage of my other Great Aunt, Sarah Tipler.

Best regards, John Smith in Southampton.
