Shropshire History

The Shropshire Sheep Breeders’ Association has a collection of  old paintings and photos of Shropshire sheep. Shropshire sheep were owned by many landed gentry who could afford to have paintings made of their prize winning sheep in the 19th century. Later on, a good photographic record was kept. Here are some of the images.
