Iffley villageChurch Way, Iffley

The photograph on the above postcard shows Church Way in Iffley village, looking north. This postcard is postmarked 1911, but the photograph probably dates from around 1900

Thatched cottage in IffleyA thatched cottage in Iffley, near Oxford (now 2 Mill Lane)

Someone with a fountain pen has put the date “7-7-12” on this card, so the above picture was taken before 1912. The cottage looks recently restored, with new thatch and new windows downstairs. The dry-stone wall has been finished off with a sloping brick course and brick piers for the gate.
