Description:

Devon County Agricultural Show – this was held in Pilton House Park (now Rotary Gardens and the North Road) in 1900. The photo was taken by Sir Bourchier Wrey of Trebitch in the County of Cornwall, 11th Baronet Wrey.

The Devon County Agricultural Association was formed in January 1872 and originally went from place to place to hold an annual show rather than having a permanent home. Some of the places hosting the show before World War I were Plymouth, Barnstaple, Newton Abbot, Tiverton, Tavistock, Honiton, Crediton, Bideford and Torquay.
