"'Bagtor Farm, Dartmoor' (W. H. Tucker, Teddington - Silver Medal). A very pleasing rendering of an unpretentious subject. The composition would have been improved by cutting out the half-building on the left. A French rectilinear, working at f/22, was employed, four seconds' exposure in good diffused light being given."

Text from "The 'Amateur Photographer' Album of Prize Photographs, 1893"
