The Old Dairy
This frieze is one of a series created in the early 19th century for the dairy, here in Crouch End
. What is not immediately obvious is that these are carved, in bas relief, and then the indentations painted. Do take a closer look at the detail in the larger picture, and compare this, if you will, with the Indian tradition. The scenes show the production of milk, from grazing to delivery, and extoll the "modern" methods. A more general view is here. It's a pub, now.
