This photograph is in my possession. On the back is written - ‘Brighstone cottages belonging to Aunt Fanny Amelia known as Auntie Sis.’ This would be Fanny Amelia BUCKETT 1880-1968. This picture shows the vernacular architecture of Brighstone which would not have changed much since the 1700s
These cottages now house the Brighstone Village Museum, the Community Library and Post Office.
Fanny Amelia BUCKETT did quite well for herself to inherit these cottages. Her father also left all his effects to her on his death in 1919.
The same cottages (top right) on a multi-view postcard from the early 1950s.
