Harry Cook and his rotovator.

John Cook ('Jack') lived at 78 Kings Road, Evesham, and worked eight and three quarter acres of land in Norton and Wickhamford. The latter was at the rear of what is now the Cats Protection League on Pitchers Hill.  He grew some fruit tree there as well as having arable land and in Norton he had more fruit trees.  John Cook was assisted by his son, Harry, who took over the land when Jack died.  The picture of Harry Cook was taken in Wickhamford, looking towards 'Wet Furrows' (Whitfurrows).  The photograph was kindly supplied by Harry's son, John Cook.
