Pavements to Ploughed Fieldsby Len Brown
In September 1939, Len Brown was evacuated from the East End of London to Fen Farm, Blo Norton, on the Norfolk-Suffolk border. From near starvation he came, as he saw it, to a land of plenty. When he arrived he saw the cornfield at the back of the farmhouse stretching away into the distance and apples hanging in bunches from the trees. As he watched the chickens pecking at corn in the yard, Len thought it must be a dream. But it was not a dream, and years of hard work followed, work that he remembered and recorded to produce this wonderful picture of life on a Norfolk farm over fifty years.
