Birch and Bracken

Birch and Bracken

This tranquil forest scene was taken in Bidston Woods, located on the Wirral Peninsula, home to Birkenhead and across the River Mersey from Liverpool. Amateur photographer Margaret Goulding, possibly from Liverpool, was the spouse of E.M. Goulding, whose work can be found on this site. Very little biographical material could be found on either as of this writing. Because of the short comments by an unknown critic on the mount verso, this finished exhibition print may once have been entered into competition or exchange program for evaluation.
