Beauty of Jersey


These photographs were taken by John Dixon-Scott, a London-based professional photographer who travelled the country between the wars recording what he believed to be disappearing landscapes and ways of life. He photographed the countryside, towns, villages and people of the UK. The photography is of a very high quality. As well as architectural and topographical views there are a small number showing traditional crafts and skills including basket-making; fishing net repair; ploughing; thatching etc. A small number of the 14,000 photographs he had accumulated by 1946, ranging from posed portraits to idyllic landscapes, are in the collection of Historic England and others in the National Archive. A set of Jersey views was used in a book published in 1930 by the Homeland Association. Only 18 of the images on this page were used in the book
