Anne Hathaway (1556 – 6 August 1623) was the wife of William Shakespeare. They were married in 1582, when he was 18 and she was 26 years old. Anne Hathaway's Cottage is a twelve-roomed farmhouse where Anne Hathaway lived as a child in the village of Shottery, Warwickshire, England, about 1 mile west of Stratford-upon-Avon. The earliest part of the house was built prior to the 15th century; the higher part is 17th century. The house was known as Hewlands Farm in Shakespeare's day and had more than 90 acres of land attached to it. As in many houses of the period, it has multiple chimneys to spread the heat evenly throughout the house during winter. The largest chimney was used for cooking. It also has visible timber framing, typical of vernacular Tudor architecture. After the death of Hathaway's father, the cottage was owned by her brother Bartholomew, and was passed down the Hathaway family until 1846, when financial problems forced them to sell it. However, it was still occupied by them as tenants when it was acquired in 1892 by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, which removed later additions and alterations. It is now open to the public as a museum. This vintage souvenir from the site features twelve 2.5" x 3.5" black and white photo cards (packaged in a mailable folding envelope) showcasing the beauty of the cottage both from the exterior and interior of the home. We estimate this piece to be from the 1930's or 40's.

    Wonderful for anyone with an appreciation for vintage travel ephemera and souvenirs, Anglophiles and fans of the bard, or those who collect vintage photography.
