Jan and Cora Gordon: Vacations in Itchenor
In August 1917 Jan and Cora Gordon visited the cottage: "We did all sorts of things during the first fortnight – mushrooming – walks – swims – water boating etc. and Jo spent quite a long time making rough sketches of the infant. Jan very happy and fit."
A painting by Jan Gordon of this area is shown below. A blue boat is pulled up on the shore. Blue, orange and green boats are reflected in the calm water, as are the white-walled, orange-roofed houses and trees in several shades of green.
