From Boy Scouts on a hike to children playing on a beach, this wonderful set of photographs captures British life almost a century ago.
The images from the 1920s and 1930s also include scenes of postmen on their rounds, police directing buses and characters in a pageant.
They were taken by Clifton R. Adams, who was sent to England by National Geographic magazine to photograph life in the country.
Mr Adams, who died in 1934 aged just 44, had instructions to record its farms, towns and cities, and its residents at work and play.
He took the images in colour using Autochrome Lumière, which was the most advanced colour photographic process of the day.
The plates were covered in microscopic potato starch grains coloured red, green and blue-violet, with about four million per square inch.
Light passed through the colour filters when an image was taken, with the plate then processed to produce a positive transparency.
