With two photographs. Bates's first published essay on the English countryside balances local color, social commentary, and evocative descriptions of towns and countryside largely protected from "the disease of ugliness [that] spreads with the machine [the automobile]." Taking the tone of a travel essay, Bates continues his Cotswold wanderings in "England Living and England Dead." In The New Clarion (August 27, 1932, i, 12, 271).
