Photographer's Note

Some areas on or near the North Downs in Surrey has revived the traditional local industry of lavender production. Up until the end of the Victorian era an area of South London that included Banstead, Carshalton and Mitcham was a leader in Lavender production. Just outside the London boundary is the North Downs. The chalk soil of the downland is perfect for growing lavender. Lavender can be used in oils, cosmetics, fragrances and food. This little girl was one of many children collecting bugs and putting them in jars.
