Thomas W. Sears took these photographs of the area around Fittleworth and Pulborough in what is now West Sussex during his 1908 trip to England. "Fittleworth" was the identifier that Sears chose to use on the label for his box of glass plates. Subjects on which he focused included bridges in the valleys of the River Arun and the River Rother, historic buildings such as Fittleworth Mill, and other scenes of village and rural life. Several sites in the area photographed by Sears have been placed on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historical Interest, whose www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk website has aided in their identification.
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies, and additional information.
