Memories of Tintern
The 1880s

Nr Tintern by George Harre, 1889

The original picture is owned by Andrew Greenburgh of Los Angeles, who we thank for his permission to reproduce the picture on this Web Site.

The picture would appear to have been painted from somewhere close to the Moon and Sixpence, then known as the Mason's Arms, and shows Abbey Passage farm. The viewpoint appears to be rather higher than the current road level.

The two images above show the scene from the 1889 painting and in November 2001.
