A dog runs playfully up the river bank to his mistress. There’s a flock of hens in the farmhouse garden, and a man walking his dog down the lane towards the packhorse bridge.
Mike kindly sent me the card from his collection. It’s captioned on the front; ‘The meeting of the waters, Goyt Valley, Buxton’. But there’s nothing on the reverse except ‘A copy of an original oil painting’.
The signature is difficult to make out, but it looks like G Ramsey. I’d guess it was painted sometime between 1920-30. The artist would have been standing beside Errwood Bridge, with Gatehouse Cottage to the right.
