A photograph of George on horseback at Kilton Lodge (written on the back of the photograph was: "Cadbury Bournville, employees 11000, ground space 35 acres, estate 72 acres, gardeners 35, commenced with small grocery store") - the photograph is marked as taken about 1925, but we wonder whether it was earlier than this?
